Artist Statement

My work as an artist reflects my appreciation for multiculturalism. My experiences of moving from place to place have influenced my artistic expression. In my latest project, I have utilized architectural representation to express cultural diversity by collaging my old architectural sketches from different cities I have lived in. This piece showcases my interest in how architecture is a reflection of our own identity and worldview.

As an artist, I aim to capture not only the physical environment but also the cultural context in which buildings and landscapes exist. Using actuarial space architecture, I have created a timeline of my travels to represent the interconnectedness of the world despite our cultural differences. By displaying the architectural drawings from different cities on one piece of paper, I aim to represent the continuous journey of my life, where each stage may be independent, but also connected. Through this project, I hope to express the importance of multiculturalism and highlight the beauty that can be found in the diverse environments we inhabit. As an artist, I value the impact of cultural experiences and diversity in shaping our understanding of the world, and I aim to convey this through my art.
