On the Art
“Many people coming together to embrace, protect and rally behind the Asian community that is currently vulnerable. I always try to focus on the positive of a bad situation and to me, the best possible outcome is seeing previously divided communities coming together to protect a community that is currently vulnerable.
The flower is deliberately abstract and ambiguous... because the word Asian encompasses so many different cultures and I don't think one type of flower can really truly represent all Asian cultures.”
On the Charity
“I believe that a future world without racism can only be achieved through long-term education and reframing the way we think about people who are different from us. The more you learn about other people and their cultures, the easier it is to bring down that mental wall that separates us from others and begin to truly embrace them. Hence, I would like to lend my support to the Canadian Society for Asian Arts, a non-profit organization that promotes understanding and appreciation of the arts of Asia.”
