Transcultural identity and hybridity.
Through the critical angle of visual art, my work encompasses other elements such as
sociology, geography, economics, politics, literature; and finally, the dynamics of
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.
