Artist Statement
“In my work, I find my inspiration from daily experiences and my belief. I see the canvas as a mirror, a dairy written in color. I visualize interacting forms and connecting lines that express what goes on in my life and in the world. All my works are filled with strong emotional content and a lot of depth.” – Ben Chong See Wai
“在我的工作中,我从日常经历和信念中寻找灵感。我将画布视为一面镜子,一本用彩色书写的日记。我想象互动的形式和连接线,表达我的生活和世界中发生的事情。我所有的作品都充满了强烈的情感内容和深度。” – Ben Chong See Wai
