About

I came to Australia in 1995 before the transfer of sovereignty over Hong Kong from the United Kingdom to China. My father is an artist, sculptor and toy designer. He owned his toy factory back then; my elder brother is also an artist, I grew up in an artistic family, my father has great influence since I was a child.

Back in the 1980s, Japanese culture influenced Hong Kong in many ways from fashion, art and media to lifestyle; my childhood was surrounded by Japanese manga and animation which profoundly impacted my style of creativity, it is not difficult to discover traces of Orientalism in some of my works. I came to Sydney to study graphic design and I graduated in 1997 with a Diploma of Graphic Design and Multimedia. I decided to stay and work in Sydney.

With almost 20 years of experience living in a diverse culture in Sydney. I see myself as a storyteller, and I express my seeing towards my feeling in art. I want to create a virtual characteristic of my imagination bringing them alive into mine work. Capture their virtual stories into my painting by using a saturate colours, strong brushstrokes to convey their stereotype and belonging to the society. I develop my paintings using various media that spoken to myself and my audience.
