TITS The Artist  .  Multi-Disciplinary Artist

I quit my finance career in 2013 to pursue art.

 

Making art allows me to make peace with myself, overcome disappointments and satisfy the ever-present curiosity.

It provides me with a mechanism to dig deep within myself, which explains the autobiographical nature of my works.

My works are not mature.

I like to experiment with different ideas, often linking the present with the past, whenever they resonated with me.

You probably noticed the presence of objects, windows, walls and fixtures. My family is in the hardware-store business. As a kid, I used to love playing in the store.

Besides surrounded by the entrepreneurial men and building materials, I was very privileged to have been nurtured by and learned from the strong sensible women in the house; whose cooking, handcrafts and wisdom would soothe anyone's soul. I dedicate my works with patterns, flowers and topics of femininity to them.

At a personal level, I am like many globally integrated nomads who started in the East and ended up in the West. I was born in Indonesia, grew up with conservative Chinese values, spent 20 adult years in Australia and call Berlin/Europe home.
