If there was one piece of art you could feature in, which would it be and why?
“Monalisa” by Leonardo da Vinci, so to have her super vision and the ability to observe all around her at the same time.
Who inspires you and why? An artist, a family member, someone current or historical?
Malala Yousafzai. For her braveness and resilient spirit advocating for human rights at such a young age. It is truly humbling.
What are your cultural aspirations? What do you still want to see, do and achieve?
I want to learn to slow down. Living in an urban city like Hong Kong, it’s so easy get to caught up in the rush and speed of activities (eating, walking, meetings, meetings…) that we forget to take time to take a step back, reflect and appreciate the moment that we are in. Definitely believe in the slow movement.
What are your favourite cultural cities in the world and why?
Paris, Tokyo and Copenhagen, for their urban planning and beautiful city design.
