With a strong focus on storytelling, most of my artworks are personal and intentional. I always like the idea of presenting arts as a complete sequence / collection. Each individual collection, consists of multiple pieces, often in the same style, grouped by specific themes, concepts or stories.
My works explore subjects that interest me personally, some touch on life itself. As a huge fan of films and music, they do heavily influence my artworks in certain ways. I am fascinated with classic films (30s-90s), it’s unbelievable the things filmmakers achieved back then. Currently, I absolutely admire films by Paul Thomas Anderson, Terrence Malick, Nicolas Winding Refn and Woody Allen just to name a few. Most of their works progress me significantly as an artist.Off the top of my head films such as, After Hours (1985), The Master (2012), The Long Goodbye (1973), Annie Hall (1977), Manhattan (1979), Knight of Cups (2015) and Eyes Wide Shut (1999) mean a lot to me personally. With music, I like me some indie folk, soul, r&b, jazz and hip-hop, mostly storytelling albums. Deeply in love with that new James Blake LP right now.
With the Walks of Life collection, Grief was one of the earlier pieces done in the series. Some of the works in this collection are vaguely inspired off my life encounters or just my thoughts / takes on certain paths / philosophies of life. I would say the pieces off WoL are some of the more grounded, challenging and reflective works I have done. The collection is incomplete, and I will continue to work on it.
