Yellow Peril Supports Black Power
Made of China
Made of China (2014) Exhibited: Mighty Jaxx’s Xmas Cookie Party Venue: Front Row, The Raffles Hotel Arcade I was one of the selected artists asked to take part in this custom toy event, where each artist was to customize a Jason Freeny gingerbread man. Seeing as how this was a western festive event taking place in Singapore, a westernized asian country, I decided to comment on globalized nations with oriental roots.
From Jesus to Yeezus
An exploration on the parallels between conventional worship and fanatical behaviours surrounding celebrity worship, bringing the definition of religion into question. I found Kanye West (aka Yeezus) to be an excellent case study as, despite his faith in Christianity, his egotistic persona and god complex paints a fascinating picture of the modern person’s struggle between submission and empowerment.

This is the mythology of Yeezianity and the human race.

Grief Is The Thing With Feathers: Book Cover Design
Grief is the thing with Feathers by Max Porter is a poignant yet whimsically paced narrative of a family that's stricken with grief by the loss of its mother. Grief comes in the form of a crow. It was my favourite read of 2018 and so I decided to design a book cover for it.

Castles Made of Sand: Vinyl Cover Design
Secret 7” takes 7 tracks from 7 of the best-known musicians around and presses each one 100 times to 7” vinyl. An open call is then made to create artwork for the 7 tracks. I chose the song "Castles Made of Sand" by Jimi Hendrix
