你是谁？Who Are You?: Solo Exhibition
Who Are You? Is the summation of my 2-month-stay in Zhujiajiao, Shanghai, China. It is a self reflective visual diary encircling my ruminations as an ethnically Chinese foreigner in China. All works as well as promotional material were illustrated and designed by me.
Artwork for Industria 2019
I was invited by the organisers of Industria (Индустрия), a pioneering design and art festival based in Izhevsk, Russia, to contribute an artwork that pays homage to the city's industrial roots. I sought to visualise the correlation between their industrial heritage and the comforts it allowed its residents by making a connection between their factories and love for sauna.

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. In congruence with the time-honoured vocabulary of Christian art, the artwork is filled with symbolism and iconography which references from the life of Yeezus. This is the mythology of Yeezianity and the human race.
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
