About

Endlessly curious. My work primarily involves the use of embroidery. I am interested in collapsing the boundaries between traditional and popular cultures and exploring the links that exist between these two. My work examines how this particular mishmash manifests itself in modern times, especially concerning modern youths. Preferring to work with craft-based techniques, I am attracted to the evidence of the hand and its time-consuming aspect, which runs counter to the instant gratification and mass-production centred age of today. My works have been exhibited in Singapore, the Philippines, Taiwan and Japan.

Hurray, Frankie!

The other day I received an email from a very nice girl and she said she read about my work in Frankie Magazine’s website and I was like whaaaat?! Frankie?! So I did some quick search and lo and behold! There it is, a lovely post about FTKYW and other works in that Frankie style we all love so much. What a great honour to be picked up by Frankie, thank you! Read it here!

Yay Leivos!

I was delighted to receive a very nice email from the lovely girls at Leivos. I used to spend hours browsing through all the amazing artists on their website so of course I’m very honoured that they wanted to write a little something about me! They asked me some great questions and you can read all about it here. Thank you, Leivos! 

NYLON Singapore - Art & Design issue. Get it!

On a very hot March afternoon, I sat down with Randy Yeo from Nylon Singapore, with some cold juice and cookies at my room/workspace. We had a very nice conversation about art in Singapore, the line between art and design, my work practice and many other things. Read all about it in their second issue. 

I am very very excited now that it’s out and am extra honoured (and out of my head over the moon) that the people at Nylon Singapore chose to feature me and my works amongst six other superbly talented creatives. A big thank you! 

As part of the feature, we were asked to make our own Nylon cover. Here’s what I did!

I am very proud as well to share these pages with a fellow artist whom I admire loads - TR853-1. If you remember, we exhibited together in the exhibition, Don’t Forget To Remember, at The Arts House. Read all about his involvement in the H&M annual campaign Fashion Against Aids (FAA) here.

Get your copy of Nylon Singapore now. They run out really fast, trust me.

Alhamdulillah. Excuse me while I scrape my jaw off the floor and resuscitate my heart. In the meantime, see it here. Thank you to everyone who made this possible.


CATALOG issue #87 - Holiday!

Back in November, the good people at CATALOG approached me to collaborate with their creative team for the magazine’s December cover. I pretended to be cool (though my heart was excitedly beating its way out of my chest) and said HELL YES. Enough talking, on to the covers!

Check out the stitched masthead the CATALOG team did. Very neat, no? Here are the girl and guy pre-production almost done but not quite there, before rocking their Levi’s threads.

I must admit I’m not much of a magazine reader but after working with the CATALOG team and poring over their past issues, I only have one word - madrespect. The magazine has come a really long way since their humble beginnings. As an independent magazine, it is strongly holding its own against other local publishings and dare I say it, doing a better job. Needless to say, am incredibly lucky and ultra excited to have this small part in its history.

Thank you to the CATALOG team, especially Weiling, Ash, Janice and Farhan for photography. Insanely talented, hardworking, friendly and passionate they all are, with just the right touch of good crazy. Not forgetting Pakkee for writing the feature, without whom I think this would not have happened. And of course, thank you to the good people at Levi’s.

Pick up your CATALOG now. It’s cool.

CATALOG play!

FTKYW in CATALOG magazine’s Issue #83 - PLAY! Together with three other local artists, pandapanda (much love for Shu!), Ridhwan Sesapar (one third of ONESIXTYNOTEPAD, very dapper and dashing young lads) and Kristie Sim (one word - multi-talented).

Thanks to everyone who made this possible. Happy weekend!

kult issue #5 - FEAR

Truly amazing and honoured to be one of the fifty-two artists and designers featured in the most recent issue of kult magazine. Did a little something on XENOPHOBIA - a fear of foreigners or strangers or of their politics or culture (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/xenophobia). Pick it up if you see it anywhere, kult magazine is cool.

Check out their past issues here and join their facebook page here.

Have a great weekend, everyone! xo
