Hi, I'm Xian, I'm a human hailing from the sunny island of Singapore currently based in New York.
and many other fun stuff.
I look at my body of work as a playful lab.
A place for the experimentation and execution of mediums and methods. Stripping down each work into their pure mechanics and technicalities.
After all, Style is merely a flavor and I'm glad to be blessed with one.
As a commercial designer + artist, I've often faced hurdles and opportunities both for the same style. There are times where I questioned if I would regret allowing for my aesthetic to be permeated into my very being. That said, I truly believe that there would be more days where I'd regret not living and doing what I am currently doing.
My practice involves a mixture of both fine arts and graphic design. Since the infancy of my practice, I question the relevance of art and design consciously and unconsciously.
I enter and exit from one to the other in hopes of finding a niche area where I can comfortably make and create. In the years of wondering and wandering,
I have been glad to have settled into the conclusion that continuous wandering is perfectly acceptable!
