This is a self-initiated collage project that explores the meaning of reality.
As an illustrator and photographer, I always wonder how 'realistic' the two mediums are, and how they function differently in a narrative.
I use both techniques to capture what I can get in touch with in life and put them in related context to tell stories.
Animal entertainment has raised public awareness and discussion around the world. Should we turn monkeys to all-rounded acrobats? It is ethical or not? Where should the bottom-line be? What are the animals suffering from? From old fashioned circus tours to zoos, are we really more civilised compare to the older generations? All these are questions we concern about. This project are not going to provide any answers, it aimed to be thought provocative. The posters are going to illustrate actual scenarios by words and lead the audience to review our world and the complicated issue.

This project is done for a non-profit organization in Hong Kong. The poster aims at raising awareness on environmental issues. Recently, the Hong Kong government wants to build incinerators in order to tackle waste problem. The project hopes to invite the audience to rethink about environmental issues that we are facing each day, the reasons behind it and the illusion of the so-called solution.
Client: Clear the Air, Hong Kong
The project is a SCAD Hong Kong x TEDx collaborative project. I was given the opportunity to create illustrations for the TEDx Hong Kong event, for their logo, printed materials and venue decorations. All the illustrations are related to the word 'Inspired'.
