emerging artist: Yen Yen Lo
"My surly-looking bell figurines are inspired by the people I see around me – particularly on public transport and in my neighbourhood. Nostalgia and reminiscences play an integral part in my work, especially childhood memories of growing up in Malaysia and the people who made an impression on me. I've always adopted a stylised form of illustration and love bringing these characters to life with expressive line brushwork and a good dose of humour."
