Lime Chang teaches children art, which involves using black markers and waste paper to be creative. It’s simple, yet there are unlimited possibilities. You could recycle that piece of waste paper, or just get rid of it, but how about drawing on it?
Growing up, I actually lacked confidence in my drawings because I couldn’t draw according to the standards everyone has when it comes to ‘realism.’ Nevertheless, I became an ‘art teacher.’ During class, I like to encourage the kids by telling them, “there are no correct answers or mistakes in drawing; drawing is just right!” Then it got me thinking, “I ought to walk the talk!” So, I gave myself a challenge: draw every single day, for one hundred days. I’ve stuck to that until this very day.
I have many sources of inspiration. Sometimes it’s something interesting that has happened in my life, or an object I spot and really resonate with. It could also be something intriguing online that I transform into a piece of my own. I also find inspiration in what I studied at university – sociology. Usually, those pieces revolve around sharing a particular concept, such as ‘social stigma,’ ‘power relations,’ ‘gender,’ etc.
