Artist's statement:

My art is a visual encapsulation of the nostalgic moods from my travels and the tension and excitement I experience living in the city.

My vision manifests itself in realistic figures, animals, and plants in watercolour surrounded by cultural elements, patterns, embroidery, symbolism, and simple ponderings that come as I am painting.

I hope that by evoking those moods through colour and form, I can share with my viewers a glimpse of the simplicity, peace and exotic yet unassuming beauty as well as the importance of the fleeting feelings that make us feel at home.

Bio:

Veda is a Hong Kong artist. She spent the better part of her teenage years studying in the UK and graduated from the University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts.

As a painter, Veda aspires to use art to preserve Asian cultures and revive traditional art-making techniques, such as embroidery and gold-leafing. While embroidery is commonly known as a handicraft and is usually seen on textiles, Veda sews directly on paper, making the thread an indispensable part of her compositions.

She works primarily with watercolour, thread, gold leaf and occasionally, ink and acrylic.
