Transcultural identity and hybridity.
Through the critical angle of visual art, my work encompasses other elements such as

globalisation, local culture and individual identity shifts. These shifts do not merely
constitute a simple amalgamation of two original subjects, but instead, seek to create an
entirely new space.
