You seem to travel a lot—what’s your favourite city so far?
Berlin. There’s a really nice creative energy there. There are a lot of young people who are independently moving to Berlin to build their creative careers because it’s comparatively cheaper to live in compared to the other cities in Europe. Music is also a big part of the Berlin culture. I recently came back from Barcelona, and I would say that comes as a close second. Ah it’s hard to choose! I like London too.
You co-founded Vulture Magazine; what was the idea behind it?
It started off as a platform for self expression for the founders but later evolved to encompass a greater scope of our musings from contemporary art to lifestyle, fashion, architecture and design. In essence, the concept behind Vulture is for a greater appreciation of creative cultures; we delve deeper into their processes and sometimes offer alternative perspectives to how staid notions are viewed.
Tell us about a project you’re working on right now, or one that you would love to undertake.
Vulture is currently working on a digital project with Dover Street Market Singapore, though I would love to be able to curate a show or take up an artist residency alongside artists like Wolfgang Tillmans or the late Jean-Michel Basquiat.
I would tell my younger self:
Learn to enjoy every moment of the journey, because every opportunity is a learning experience. The effect of saying ‘yes’ may sometimes surprise you.
I’m currently listening to:
Shigeto, and Obvs by Jaime xx. They’ve been on replay recently while I’m writing or retouching images. I’ve already got my tickets reserved for The xx’s upcoming show in Singapore this July!
