23:59 | THE STORY OF

 


”’23:59’ is an idea I came up while on my flight to London from Germany. 23:59 is an excitement before an excitement, your last stage of expectation of something that will happen in a new chapter. It is a moment that brings you mixed feelings, either excited or nervous, you can’t predict the future even it is just a minute close to you. And ‘23:59’ captures my mixed feelings. Very distorted, complex, and random.”

-Jimmy

 
 
 

“I’m always a big fan of pop art and contemporary art because you can swing between classic and modern with artworks and create something surreal and fun. I take inspirations from reality, and transform it into a fantasy.”
-Jimmy

“‘23:59’ is expressive in terms of the style of visuals. I intended to create a surreal world with something people are familiar with. It seems like a classic fairytale made of pop and contemporary art.” -Jimmy

 
 

LOSING ALL HOPE IS FREEDOM

 

“Freedom is all what I need. Nothing is fun without freedom, especially for art. I translated the word ‘Freedom’ in many different languages because freedom is for everyone. This strong pursuit of freedom in art was established when I felt my creativity was compressed back home. And when I moved to London, everything changed and I started to embrace that expressive energy in my artworks. London changed me in every way.”-Jimmy

FREEDOM

FREEDOM!
