3. What is your favourite medium and why?

Firstly thereโ€™s Youtube, and secondly, thereโ€™s graphic novel. I believe that we can learn anything via Youtube in this modern society. I keep Youtube on for 23 hours a day. I feel that graphic novel is such a mesmerizing genre amongst auteur-orientated publications. Iโ€™ve never hesitated to pay for graphic novels and either have I ever regretted for the contents. It also helps since I am preparing for my own graphic novel.

4. What is your artistic process like?

It begins with taking memos. When it gets piled up, there are many words that get me thinking. By re-assembling these words for some time, an interesting sentence is made up. After several sentences are made, I re-arrange the orders and try to come up with more dramatic situations that could reflect on the contemporary lives, which then becomes my work.

6. What role does art play in your life? How does it change the way you view the world?

To me, art is a way of exploring myself. I guess itโ€™s about being honest with your preferences. There are no particular answers though.

Lo-Fi, Afro, Motown, Soul, Jazz and everything. I am quite open to many different music genres. I recently listened to Rex Orange County and liked it very much. If I get to listen to one last song before I die, I would like to close my eyes with โ€˜This guyโ€™s in love with youโ€™ by the Reels.

14. What are your hobbies?

I make music in a band. I played bass guitar in a band called Pony ( until 2 years ago. The band had been very active, but each member became too busy with their own schedules, so it paused. Lately, I started out a band named โ€˜Vacation Lifeโ€™ (, and I am having fun writing songs and jamming with the new band.
