Throwback of some previous work – caricature of some amazing professional dancers, performers & dance studio owner. People who practices for years to get to where they are today, people who not only dare to dream but to go after it.
As I am selecting some photos of our previous works for slideshows for the meet and greet session this coming Friday, I came across these photos. They were taken 3 years back when we first started the company. With limited budget & resources, very few contacts & great amount of uncertainty. All we had was just zeal, some faith, tiredness & dissatisfaction of living the same lives that we had been living for the past 5 years. Tired of constantly meeting the expectation & fitting into the conception of people around us. By refuse to be fitted into the mould of human opinion, we went all out, stepping into the unknown/uncertain future & did something traditional society thought would be ridiculous & stupid (if not starve to death). God is faithful & He came through for us when we took that step while most people around (including few religious folks) just stood aside and criticized in unbelief. Thanks to a few who believe & stick with us from the beginning. Sometimes I am amazed by how people just criticize things that they don’t really understand, perhaps our bold move got them offended. Well, I still hope that one day they will be inspired, have the same courage to step out so that they too, will enjoy the rewards & joy of seeing their dream come to pass. (On the other hand, I believe we don’t really know God even we when claimed we do until we experienced Him in our lives, believe that He is for real & trust Him completely.) I am really glad that God had proven He delights in people who simply trust in Him, despite of the so-called “reality” are trying to stop them from doing so. Looking back, it’s an amazing journey. We may have a humble beginning, but we are still going strong today. We have not arrive yet but we had left. Continue to pursue the purpose of our lives & enjoy the wonderful journey that God has set before us. Changing people’s perception & perspective towards art, one caricature at a time. Encouraging people to see themselves as a precious & unique being, to live up to the potential & call in their lives. I would say this is rebel for a good cause.
Sometimes, we get questions like why caricature? Well, we simply love human, and the fact that everyone is unique & different. Our core value lies in equality, everybody is precious in the eyes the the Creator, minus the background, social status, education or wealth. Everyone deserves a personal gift that depicts them (lives / stories). People often got the idea that the artworks are photographic images because they seem quite realistic. The truth behind is simply 2 artists who spend huge amount of time & effort in perfecting every art pieces. It’s a whole-hearted process & we imparted our lives into every artwork we produced. Not only did it slowly changes people’s perception towards art, it help us to go beyond stereotypes & embrace the beauty of originality. Happy Sunday. 🙂
We drawn many couples & families over the years, and yet we are still overwhelmed by the love & joy of their life stories. A person who willing to commission artists (on the other side of the world) whom they never met (of course) to create the artwork that recorded the important and precious moment of their lives, is like taking a leap of faith. And we gladly accept the responsibility with these projects graciously entrusted to us. This time, a fairy tale in the forest path.
