Art and fashion are intrinsically linked, and more so now than ever. My art activities seek to strengthening the value of arts and culture which preserve our collective memory about history and heritage, and also help to serve as roots that connect our past and work towards the future. My art concepts were delivered by pieces of art works and fashion design. They all related and around my art philosophy, which I defined it as “The Value of Arts and Cultural Heritage”.
