Sept 19, 2011: I was one of 6 regional artists invited by Kult to create an artwork for Facebook's official launch in Singapore (alongside Anjo Bolarda, Random Sunday, Adeline Tan, Stephen Chan and Jason Raish). I was given this fact to interpret: 'There are more than 70 translations available on Facebook'. For my poster, I imagined what it must be like for more than 70 different people talking in different languages, all at once, each trying to communicate with each other at the same time. Here are some pictures of the poster in the Facebook office:

Tangled! 30" x 24". Colored yarn on canvas, May 7, 2011: Artwork for OIC x Curious Teepee illustration show.
Inspired by psychedelic 60s fashion and color, Tangled! is an artistic exploration of the use of yarn as a substitute for painting on canvas. The artist, without any formal training in knitting, stitching or sewing, attempts to bridge painting and fashion together, using improvisation, crude knotting skills and tangling techniques. The canvas becomes the body, and the yarn becomes an abstraction of a dress - if you can call it one.
