What are the joys and woes specific to cross-cultural marriages? What goes through the mind of a person who decides to marry someone from a different culture?  What keeps these types of marriages together?

Both artists recently got married and are both in cross-cultural marriages, one to an American and the other to a Singaporean of Taiwanese descent.

The artists, each with their spouses, will attempt to construct a piece that exemplifies the uncanny poetry created as cultures enmesh together, the push and pulls of negotiating life together and the tango of the marriage union.




For reasons highlighted above, featured below are the thoughts that the artist had considered in the making of 囍 and the processes the artist had gone through. Take your time to appreciate the work that had gone behind the single piece of final work. We hope that you too will be able to see that the value of art lies not solely in the outcome but also in the thoughts of the artist and how that was translated through a physical medium. May this will start your creative juices flowing. Happy art-making!
