Could you tell us more about the production steps at WHITE GARDEN?
« I collect inspiring visuals and randomly photograph natural elements. Once I feel like having a bunch of cool inspirations, I share my ideas with my sister so that she can draw some illustrations for me. Then, I gather her work and my photos on the computer and develop collages highlighting drawings, paintings and photos. I need some weeks to work on printing tests with different materials that have to be confortable as well as resistant and optimal for digital printed patterns. When the prototype is finally ready, I send it to production in an atelier based in Bangkok. »
