Studio Update - Why is there a bed in my studio?

This is how my studio currently looks like this month (May 2019). Yes! There is a bed in my studio! It is actually my sofa bed, which is convertible. The thing is, my studio was left unoccupied most of the time for the past 3 months because it was hard for me to climb upstairs to paint (due to the leg accident).

So I decided to convert it into a temporary coliving room, ala art residency style to selected artist applicants who wish to spend an artsy getaway at my creative coliving space, The Hatchery Place. Doesn’t it look cozy to you? 😻

The plan is, when I'm not working on big canvas projects in there, I would let other artists who wants to stay here to utilize this room. If you are traveling to Malaysia / Kuala Lumpur, and would like to customize a creative retreat at my space, you can click here to apply and check our availability. 🎨🏠

What I've been up to this week?

My routine has been toned down ever since my broken leg in Feb'19. My focus nowadays is mostly on working on the contents of my Patreon page. Yes, I’ve just started a Patreon Page!! I'm making a time-lapse video of my latest artwork, writing about my art insights, and compiling some pictorial step-by-step so I can share it there for my patrons. If you’re interested in supporting my art, please head over to to my Patreon page and pledge for me ^^

Here’s a sneak peek of what you’ll get if you join my  Patreon  family:

As for my daily routine, I'm also working on commission work, and running my creative space, The Hatchery Place. I have a few awesome peeps coliving with us right now, and in some evenings, I'm spending time mingling and having dinner with the Hatcherians. I've also been busy with physiotherapy for my leg, as I really need to build my leg muscles up so I can walk again real soon. 

And if you enjoy looking at time lapse painting videos, I’ve posted some on my new YouTube channel. Please subscribe to my YouTube channel, so you’ll be notified when I post new videos :)
