In this one year that I've been working on Walking with Giants, I've been focusing a lot on western art, and I thought it'd be great to go back to my roots and explore and discover some Asian creatives. I'm starting off in Singapore, where I was born and raised.
To be honest, I wasn't expecting to find any artists, let alone photograph them, Singapore's one country where art is almost non-existent.
But you know, with google, almost anything's possible.
I spent my morning chatting with Yeo Siak Goon, at 14, he knew he couldn't do anything but art. So he dropped it all and gave all his energy to art. From photography to publishing and now a full-time painter, he's worked hard all his life, to learn and to create, and even now he's still hungry for more.
