Lisianthus - Ink & Gouache, 9.1 x 12.2 in. - €450

"Born in Perak, Malaysia, to a father who was an orchid grower and a mother who was a seamstress, I grew up with a love for beauty, art and aesthetics, and a unique perspective on beauty. I like to explore 'colour', the significance of colour as a cultural symbol for different races or ethnic groups, and because I come from a multicultural country - Malaysia - and I majored in Cultural Anthropology during my university years, I often combine culture, colour and flowers in my art.

My works core concept and features are mostly based on greenery and flowers, which stem from the fact that since I was a child, I have been living with flowers and plants, and I feel that the world of flowers, plants and plants is full of joy, carefree, comfortable and at ease, and that I am passionate about collecting treasures of the natural world. I remember my father's orchid garden is a good medicine for my spiritual enrichment, and the flying winged insects in the garden are regarded as an image of "freedom", which is the goal that I want to pursue most, so I incorporate the concept into my works. Through my arts, I hope to bring people a sense of abundance and comfort in their inner world."
