“Dream in the cubicle” depicts an intoxicating experience in a public washroom cubicle. While the body is wrecked, the mind reaches beyond the confines of the physical space. The piece explores the idea of breaking free from the constraints of rationality and soberness, and the transformative power of allowing oneself to dream and explore the unknown.
Delicate sparks of romance brew the liquor of love.
“Masu Memory” depicts a person drinking alone, as their disoriented life comes to a standstill in the space trapped in a Masu box.
(Masu is a square wooden box used for drinking Japanese sake.)
“Tiki Ecstasy” features a stack of tiki mugs, each representing the emotional consequences of drinking.
“Catching Disco Ball” is a tequila label design that captures the feeling of exhaustion at a night club and the power of tequila to keep the party going.
“I Never Liked Family Occasions”

This screen-printing is inspired by photos of inebriated people on the subway from the #ShibuyaMeltdown phenomenon. The piece portrays daily life on TTC subway, encountering individuals who are intoxicated, and trouble minded. Each individual is like an island, with their own struggles and emotions.
This small print is a spin-off of ‘Tunnel Meltdown’ and portrays the other side of the subway – a gentle, heartwarming, and empty carriage. The piece showcases the peaceful and calm moments in public transportation, which are often overlooked in the chaos of daily commuting.
This illustration brings together two poets from different parts of the world, each expressing their emotive sensations from intoxication through poetry.
Poem 1: The Meadow Lake by Tang Gong (year of birth and death unknown, around 1276-1367 Yuan Dynasty), China
Poem 2: I Taste a Liquor Never Brewed by Emily Dickinson (1830-1886), United States.
