I grew up in Singapore, where the culture tends towards following the status quo. They get appalled by anything slightly strange, I had to deal with that for twenty years. The creative scene in Singapore is very commercial and results based, there is almost no room for self-expression. Due to living in such a stifling atmosphere, I believe I grew to be unconsciously attracted to whatever's out of the norm, which was how I developed my sensibility – it blew my teenage mind when I discovered what was happening creatively in London. So even when I was in Asia, I was referencing what was happening in Europe. Now I am based in London and I think it's advantageous that I have the chance to experience both cultures and draw from such a wide pool of influences.
