The Anomalous series is inspired by the beauty of individualism and daring to be different. Across the world, there are widely held stereotypes about many things including race, gender and religion. It takes courage and conviction to break away from them and be truly comfortable in our own skin. Animals share a similar fate too. Do zebras have to be in black and white? Humans can choose to look different and have their signature-styles based on choice of outfits, mannerism and the things they say. On the contrary, a koala bear can only be light grey or brown. Through the Anomalous series, the artist hopes to encourage alternative thinking and attitudes toward stereotyping and celebrate the beauty and courage in individualism.
