More About Leow Wei Li
What inspires you?
I am inspired by everyday, ordinary objects or materials.

It usually begin with encountering an object that has or had a specific function. I would collect and then spend time with it, exploring different ways to present it anew.

What is the most important tool when creating your work?
What is the best piece of advice you have been given?
“One doesn’t arrive — in words or in art — by necessarily knowing where one is going. In every work of art something appears that does not previously exist, and so, by default, you work from what you know to what you don’t know." - Ann Hamilton
Where do you go for inspiration?
I love to visit stores where people shop for their everyday supplies, particularly home improvement stuff.
