Craftsmanship is contemporary.
Where technology and innovation takes over, contemporary works call for the revival of past traditions in modern practices. Contemporary works should include the mental and physical participation of the ‘user’ and not the ‘viewer/spectator’. Art & design by a machine should not be considered good art/design as it celebrates not the art itself, but the science(and/or art) of the machine.
If the young person who rejoices in creative activity now begins his career as in the older days by learning a craft, then the unproductive "artist" will no longer be condemned to inadequate artistry, for his skills will be preserved for the crafts in which he can achieve great things.
Art should comforts the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.
Graduated from Nanyang Technological University, School of Art Design & Media and work experience from a furniture design and an advertising agency, my portfolio of works ranges from print to installation(form & spatial) and video(time), applying a multidimensional artistic approach to our modern needs of visual communication. A line, in the shape of a chevron, evokes the idea of a roof in the corporate identity of the Family Justice Courts of Singapore; a circular and square arrangement of tablets represents Heaven and Earth in the installation, Questions to Heaven; these simple graphic signifier presenting visual clarity but deep conceptual approaches is a recurring theme in my works.
