Pieced Together

Tell us something interesting about yourself.
I’m an artist and I’m currently preparing for an exhibition. I do mostly portraits and work for magazines—they’re kind of like fashion illustrations, where I take a face and an outfit from a catalogue and put them together. I started painting when I was three or five years old. My parents didn’t buy many toys for me; my father makes wooden sculptures, while my brother can paint.

Do you have any hobbies?
Maybe just cooking. I cook what I think is called ‘what-you-see-in-your-fridge’. (laughs) It’s Cooking Improvisation.

A staple in my wardrobe:
I think a black mini dress, for sure, for any lady, and also many different bags, and a lot of jackets. I love jackets. It’s very sad that I cannot wear them out in Singapore a lot. That’s why I travel to cold countries—to wear my jackets. (laughs)

Can you tell us about a memorable trip?
I think the last one was to Japan. I really loved it; it was amazing. I went very close to Mount Fuji, and also visited the suicide forest.

If you had a superpower, what would it be and why?
I want to have a portal. So if I wanted to be in a forest, like this beautiful one in Japan, I can just be there.

If you could trade lives with somebody, who would it be and why?
Maybe Vladimir Putin. (laughs) I don’t know, he has so much power. He has some strengths—when somebody tells him ‘no’, he says ‘yes’. It’s things like that that I want to take into my character, because sometimes it’s a bit hard for me to say no. Sometimes you just have to find the strength to fight, and just do your thing. What I like about Putin is that he was just a normal guy and he became a president, unlike Donald Trump who got money from his father to start his business. Maybe not just Putin, but people who were normal, and followed their dreams and achieved them.
