Yi Pei Loh’s art explores the intervention of his imagination into everyday life experiences and surroundings. He depicts imaginary cityscapes and distorted nature, showing the interplay between the real and fictional world. By illustrating the unreal, he believes that fiction can inspire and explore how we experience the everyday lives. Executed with Chinese ink and watercolour on paper, the works reflect different aspects of contemporary life and culture. The works have stories to tell but, at the same time, aim to inspire audience generate their own.
