My second exhibition taught me to be patient and never rush myself to create art.

FLEDGE: TWO, the follow-up to my first exhibition was held 21 April 2018 at Unit 5 Hoxton, London. I was in a position where I felt like I was truly growing as an artist, becoming more confident in my own work and slowly nurturing my own creative style. I displayed prints of digital illustrations, custom painted sneakers, clothing designs and original ink illustrations.

The show however wasn’t what I had orginally planned. The planning, scouting venues to the work I displayed all occured in a short time span of two weeks. Even though this is enough time to create substantial work, it wasn’t enough time spent experimenting concepts, executing ideas and scouting a more suitable venue for the show.

I’m proud and grateful for the opportunity to have held this exhibition, it served as a bigger lesson to myself about my values surrounding my own work and creativity. After having rushed myself to hold this exhibition, I promised myself that I would take my time to carefully develop and create for my next show. I’ve been slowly working on my next show since holding FLEDGE: TWO in 2018, it’s just a matter of time when I feel truly ready to execute.
