The maknae (youngest) and still is of the entire class in her college had always been disregarded.
But by this mindset, she is spins the wheel and aligns the negative to omit them and turn it into positive energy.
The works she produces has a certain childish aesthetics, yet is produced at a daredevil level – something real professionals wouldn’t dare to make offsets off.
She is certainly a little teeny close-to-naught in the universe, but believes she can leave a deep mark on the planet Earth through the events, drawings, graphics, opinions, and sounds she create and communicate.
The ultimate goal to achieve is to transform, substantiate and promote Asia as the place to be, and Asian artists and designers to be the big thing by the next upcoming decade. We are the next big thing and we all in this region have a chance to be in par with creatives from the West that is adjudged to the point of standard of everything.
Currently, her area of focus to boost up to the world are the creatives from Indonesia, Korea, Thailand, and Japan.
Known to her colleagues with the moniker ‘Rice’, she believes that in the future the world will have rice as their staple: feeding the world with Asian designs through her.
Are you ready to shake the world together? Anyone that is in process of creating a new movement or image communication that makes a big bang, please do share and brainstorm – she loves the process of generating a long-haul creative storm.
e l z b t h r a i s a is currently an undergraduate of LASALLE under the dept. of Fashion Communication. Born and raised in Jakarta, Indonesia before moving to Singapore to chase her dreams early by pursuing arts in the college at the mere age of 15. She is under the process of honing her design and arts skills at a slow but sure pace, masticating each and every technique and history elements learnt that helped shaped the art and design world today. The major she is now gives her the ultimate freedom to follow fashion, one of the art streams she appreciates most, whilst gaining valuable experiences and be proficient as a photographer, journalist, entrepreneur, art director and stylist, both in fashion and in other areas of her primary interest.
She has two polar aesthetics: the sharp, intense black and white monochrome designs, taking the maestro Rick Owens as the excellent example for this one. The other polar, is all things kitschy Japanese: the cute, the glares of the fluorescent colors, the pattern clash, with a whimsical illustrative touch to make the design live in fantasy, such as Tsumori Chisato and everlastingsprout. In between comes the mediator: anything pertaining to natural things, asymmetrical, unorthodox, and an old school touch creates the aesthetics.
Currently, she is based in Singapore. The northern part of Japan or Seoul is her next choice of destination as part of her plan to settle amongst the mixed Asian culture.
Other than occupying herself with the now-present freelance jobs as a journalist and a part-time Project Manager in a fashion retail consultant company, her full-time would be always a Lomo collector regarding her as her babies, a world traveller, an Otaku nut, and a Hallyu fangirl.
