art

One of my first childhood memories is me drawing on a wall (and getting in trouble for it), so I've quite literally been drawing ever since I could remember.

Art is both a source of comfort and catharsis for me, as it lets me experience and/or express my ideas and feelings... especially those I find hard to verbalise.

I like experimenting with different styles of art, but I typically lean towards a cartoonish/childish style. When I'm not drawing, I also like doodle-journalling (I call this doojo hehe) and calligraphy/lettering.

These days, I generally make art related to culture, identity, mental health, intersectionality, and everyday life. Here are some examples of my recent work.

Before 2020, I was mostly doing traditional art/crafts. I still do them and am hoping to learn many more art forms/techniques. Below are some examples of what I've tried:

One of the coolest art projects I've done was working on a 30,000 sqft mural with 24 other artists from KLSketchNation in 2020. Here's a montage of what we did and how it turned out:

Writings

As a verbivore, I flex my creative muscles using words whenever I can, for fun and/or for reflection. I believe in the power of words to move hearts and effect change.

I have been a blogger for over 10 years on numerous topics. I also write poetry, some of which have been published in zines and/or performed at JALAN DALAM, katakvtv, and kata.mata.

One of my poems is featured on @katakvtv on Instagram.
Some of my public poems are available here.
