An article in the international art magazine CONTEMPORARY IDENTITIES
Author Dr. Emelia Ong, Art Historian writes in the December issue of the international art magazine "Contemporary Identities" about my work.
Dr. Emelia Ong: "Trough a combination of comic book style narrative and pop art aesthetic, Super Pop Boy presents a humourus and provocative look at the world we live in. Using well-known comic characters and icons of popular culture, he leverages on the mass appeal of these symbols to draw attention to how they represent our collective desires, anxieties and hopes.
Discrete icons and concepts are playfully juxtaposed to present a tongue-in-cheeck commentary on the state of society. These larger then life icons magnify the current pulse of urban life along with its struggle to make sense of itself. The use of play as a thematic invite us to view life metaphorically as a fun and exiting game. His works reflect a world where pop culture, technology and mass media meet to offer us entertainment, relief and perhaps some hard truths."
Participation in the exhibition "Anti-Freeze" by London gallery owner Casandra Bowes
This is an exhibition concept close to my heart- as a gallerist working in the commercial art world for over 5 years, I have long been frustrated with the lack of diversity, inclusivity and transparency of the art world. At Anti-Freeze you will find artists from all walks of life, visible prices (and a range of prices) and an embracing of all things digital.
We are experiencing a moment during which our lives seem frozen in time and held in a field of stasis. We may feel immobilised with fear and anxiety; uncertain of our next move or which direction to take.
Anti-Freeze is a catalyst to create a new state of flow, to overcome stasis, to excite the electromagnetic energy field at the individual and collective level in order to create higher vibrations .
