MAYA WONG x Likit

Likit, a 6-year-old boy from Camillian Home for Children Living with Disabilities, joined the art therapy program for children with cerebral palsy. He has amazingly shown his talent in abstract painting. With the balance of matching colours, he used his two hands to smear the canvas as if he merged himself into each piece of his artwork. Ultimately, it is the result of feelings and emotions of a child who worked with an infinite imagination. This shows us the potential of children with cerebral palsy who can create something inspiring.

Felix Atkinson

I paint emotions. Above all else, the emotional self (rather than the intellectual) is what drives my work. Constantly resolving some degree of internal conflict, while having new problems arise during the act of painting, is fundamental to my artistic process. My idea of portraiture is not about depicting reality, but a crystallisation of our collective feelings.

From the constant stream of faces that float around us each day (strangers on the street, friends and lovers, what I see on TV and magazine covers), I work on isolating certain traits/expressions, removing them from their initial context, and isolating these in an unreal space that is outside of our physical reality.

Through creating a sensory experience on the canvas, I desire for people to connect to my work on a deeper, more emotional level and for the painting to belong to them, as much as it belongs to myself.
