In 1996, during my early research of creating figurines I realized my chosen material should be Perspex, not resin and in minimum quantity, limited editions.
By 1999, I bought my first vinyl toy by a Chinese artist MICHAEL LAU, who was a pioneer in this movement. Through a friend in Hong Kong, Mr. Yan (local Joeystaar), I met the famous Michael Lau, who reviewed my prototype, and she gave me her contact of her manufacturer, which was unexpected at this stage of my research.
The productions that follow have proved to be a success, which does not spoil the party, and it is all these encounters, this new atmosphere, this unknown culture and these plastic dreams.
This new sculpture series will be exhibited in both Hong Kong and there after New York, my new “Mecca”.
