Artist Biography

Creative Concept:

As the exhibition is held in an integrated resort that has different kinds of enjoyment, the artist wants to create works that has a sense of affluence, material wealth and extravagance. Two symbols come to his mind, gold and flower. Flower represents love, prosperity and fortune, while gold associates with wealth, victory and the winner. A combination of the two elements creates these little golden flower deities, a good luck charm for its owner!
