Embracing the Process and Connecting Frontiers

"When I immigrated to Canada in 2005, I was drawn to the nature, places, and their relation with sense of identity. I was interested in learning and painting these relational ties between identity and place, and how we developed certain instincts, feelings, or love for new places that were chosen for us to call home. Perhaps it was a way for me to express my diaspora experiences living in foreign lands and taking a romantic approach to relate to their histories, cultures, and natures. It was somehow a space for healing and tranquility for me during the process of making Canada my second home."

NFT Expert and founder of The Guestwork Agency

"Each time an NFT is created (minted) and sold, it is registered on a public, decentralised blockchain. That registration - which is immutable - records when the transaction took place, what digital wallets were used in the transaction, and the cryptocurrency value of the transaction. This is a game-changer for the mainstream art world, where the prices and dates of sale of artworks are closely guarded secrets held by the artist’s gallery."

A Conversation of Dance, Protest and Fire

"I am tempted to think that artists, just like people in general, should take part in activist movements as their duty to participatory democracy as well as to their own sense of responsibility towards accomplishing justice, equality and environmental sustainability in society. However I also think the artwork should preserve a certain sense of autonomy and freedom in finding form to ideas in its own way. In a nutshell, artists should be activists and art should be autonomous."

Building a Radically Sustainable Seaweed Future

"Below the water, there is a plethora of other sources of nutrition. However, many of these sources face similar issues to the bees with threats due to warming, acidifying oceans, proliferation of other species of ocean flora, pollution and some human fishing practices. So, my interest in seaweed grew from the similarities and links between the threats that many species of plants and animals face now, as well as the opportunities for change."
