“In the beginning, a large number of manuscripts were drawn. The contents were from magazines and newspapers that I collected. I would often avoid characterization of the face, and emphasize on body language. Watercolour are utilised on manuscripts, they have a strong uncertainty. Sometimes I will repeat the same manuscript many times and choose the one I am satisfied with. Then I would use oil paint to present the image. This process is crucial for the completion of an artwork, it is even more important than the content itself. My creations in the future will persist on this process, and it should create many more possibilities.
