My Roboy story illustration tell the story of how a vintage robot always wanted to be human. It was something he can never be. He can only dream to be one. In his dreams, he dreamt to be someone who has all the emotions of an human being, where love, life, happiness and sadness and even the human taste can become real . He was happy still just by dreaming of it . Perhaps this is the other side of me, when sometimes grown ups has been through all the things in life but somehow missed out the most basic ones. Robot is a way to show how I am still passionate about life but somehow still drowning in them. I still appreciate the experience of not owning a robot toy, if I had one maybe I wouldn’t be inspired by the meaning behind it.
Balloon animals series is a new collection that utilize objects that resemble real life, I develop Balloon animal series because I find them having the same fate as Roboy. They are like animals but again not real. Humans like to create to objects that resemble life but at the same time they are not alive at all. This made me feel like sometimes humans are artificial too because we have bonded so much with the things that has been created for us.
Wendy Y. 於 80’s 出生於馬來西亞首都吉隆坡，在這富有多元文化的國家中成長，從小因為父親對於生活的樂活態度，也影響 Wendy Y. 從小培養對於萬物產生好奇，養成敏銳且得天獨厚視覺藝術嗅覺外，對於生活上的喜怒哀樂與接觸的感知，都將化為每段時期不同的創作靈感，如同偉大藝術家 Andy Warhol 曾經說過：
Andy Warhol's quote “You need to let the little things that would ordinarily bore you suddenly thrill you.”
Wendy Y. 認為每個人都該充滿想像力，將這無限想像化作藝術呈現作品中，他的風格多半是童趣、黑色幽默、正面樂觀意象, 且主題多元反映當下內心的訴說。
