Since I was growing up, I liked to imagine a world where there were characters and stories in everything I saw, from a coat hanger to a duck. A coat hanger could tell me all his secrets and troubles, and I was always a good listener, trying to comfort the coat hanger. I patted a duck to sleep, for I thought he must feel lonely now and then. Unfortunately, the duck passed out in my arms because I held him too long as the duck couldn’t stand that much heat. One day I fell in love with a very beautiful rock in my uncle’s concrete factory, it was like love at first sight. I took it for a shower in a pond, and it accidentally slipped from my hand…I still think about that rock till today.
After five years of people watching, I created a series of drawings, leading up to my new body of work entitled Project Dizzyland in 2020. It is a world I built where people and animals and nature live in harmony, where they can explore and experience life together, celebrating each day and growing older together. It is about seeing the magic in a world that is often missed with the rush of contemporary society.
