Favorite works of art or artists
I like a variety of artists such as Ron Mueck, Chris Ofili and Lorenza Bottner. I love art which utilizes texture and different materials. For me, my favorite works are those that trigger great excitement and a variety of emotions when I first encountered the work.
What is art for you?
To me, art is a powerful existence with unlimited possibilities that makes me feel okay to be myself and gives me a sense of belonging. I believe art is also something that reminds us of the importance of appreciation and open-mindedness. It also acts as a diary for me, because I strongly associate life experiences and memories with the art I come into contact with.
