Consumerism Art

In today's era of consumerism, daily life has been commercialized. Objects and even people have become symbols in today's society, and the meaning of pursuit has become a pessimistic move.

The consumerist society too relies on status symbols to distinguish social status and social stratification, so that adults and even teenagers have the value of wearing famous brands or luxury goods to show their personal identity and satisfy their own vanity.I painted four adults and teens, dressed in luxuries that might not actually be necessary, with backgrounds smeared in different colors to show the desires and vanity of people under the influence of today's consumerism.

In addition, these painting assignments are used to wake people up that not to blindly pursue unnecessary popularity.

  • Power of Leaves

    This is my artwork in My Tiger Values Art Competition 2020, hosted by Maybank. I choose leaves texture brush to form a tiger's painting, because the leaves can bring out TIGER's values, which are teamwork, integrity, growth, excellence & efficiency, and relationship building. Thousands of mature leaves stacked one by one to show the cooperation. Each leaf knows its role and strengths well and completes the pattern efficiently.After completing this tiger's work, the relationship of each leaf has also been established. If the relationship collapses, the tiger's work will also be destroyed.
