On 4th December 2011, I had been invited to the studio for interview. The interview was conducted in smooth and relaxing way. Although i could choose to speak in either Japanese of English, i decided to try my best in Japanese considering most of the audiences might understand the language better compared to English. The contents were circled on when, why and how i came to start painting, my solo art exhibitions in Fukuoka and the response of people here towards it, my favorite artists, the relationship between my study (Town & Regional Planning) in university and art career or artworks, my life and experience as a foreigner living in Fukuoka in terms of communication problems, culture shock and so on besides a brief introduction of homeland, Malaysia.
