About

Hi Everyone!

After my walk on the Camino de Santiago in Spain, I made the decision to sell everything to fund my 3-year painting drawing and painting programme in Florence, Italy. Looking back, it was something I had to address. Before all of this, I was doing graphic design, advertising, environmental design, documentary-making and animation (in that order).

I make art in Singapore as a full-time artist - a conscious decision. Some do it here if they have deep pockets. The reason why I am here on Patreon is because I don't. But I love oil painting the way the old masters did to paint pictures - be it a figurative work, a still life, a portrait or a landscape (plein air) painting. It's a lost skill, but at the same time, I see this movement being revived in Europe and in North America. I also do urban-sketching and illustrating using ink or watercolours to complement my oil painting techniques.

Making art like the old masters take time and the materials I use cost quite a fair bit. Fortunately, through Patreon, you can be a patron of my art and support what I do daily - just like how Michelangelo and Caravaggio used to have patrons who funded their works. By doing this, you can help me focus on creating the art, instead of me spending time wondering where my next studio rental fee will come from.
