What is the mission of your brand/ practice?
My mission in my artistic practice is deeply intertwined with my life, they go hand in hand. It’s a lifelong commitment to understanding the world around me and within me. Social injustices weigh heavily on my conscience, given the limited opportunities for people with my background…. I feel a responsibility to speak up. Advocating against social injustices, I hope my art can maybe serve as a voice for those often unheard.

How would you like the industry to change?
While I hope for positive changes in the industry, I remain skeptical about its willingness to break free from established norms. My art serves as a medium for dialogue, aiming to contribute to a collective awareness that may drive meaningful change.
