Finally got a new dp thanks to @olliartnz. This is my gold fish ugly Betty, she was one of my most prized fish during my artist residency in the U. S. child memories come back and forth and how fitting to have a figure of this size sit in the middle of @depotartspace. Thanks a million to all the friends and family members that made it to the opening today. Again I have to mention @newsubjectivity for her help all the way to make this all happen again in 11 years. #giantgoldfish #nzart #nzartist #weilunha #inkart #japanesepainting #artheals #artistsoninstagram #artwork #artcollector #artcollection #interiordesign #interiorart #lifephilosophy #instaart #paintings #art

Friend walked past and helped me take this photo at night. At night the fish reminds me of paper cut outs during new years we place in windows as decorations. #contemporarypainting #contemporaryart #chinesepainting #artcollection #interiordesign #publicartnz #publicart #weilunha #nzart #nzartist

Done and finally heading home. Was a very cool Chinese New years project with @stylecomnz and @commercial_bay.

A family commission from my chill pill series. To remind us to remain calm in all situations . Pills in a chaotic circle, a vicious cycle, in a white space defying gravity the pills float, defying fate of failing... When fall is enviable in a picture. Blue and white porcelain symbols how fragile and beautiful life is on earth. Every pattern is different but every shape fits in the picture as one. No piece of the puzzle is there without reason. #contemporarypainting #contemporaryart #chinesepainting #sumipainting #pills #chillpill #bluepill #nzart #nzartist #weilunha #inkart #healingart #japaneseart #artcollection #interiordesign #interiorart #lifephilosophy #instaart #paintings #art

Keep eyes peeled for a small collection of blue coming down to @solandergallery #smallartworks #nzart #nzartist #weilunha #inkart #japanesepainting #nzart #porcelain #contemporarypainting #contemporaryart #chinesepainting #sumipainting #landscapeart #blue #artcollection #artcollectoritems #artcollector #interiorart

It's funny how people don't realize how small some of these paintings are. I see some Jaws drop when they zoom in and realize some lines I do are thinner than hairs. Every brush stroke has intent, with intent combined with awareness, true art of being in the moment is there. #paintingdetails #contemporarypainting #contemporaryart #chinesepainting #sumipainting #porcelainart #weilunha #nzart #nzartist #fragilheart #porcelain #porcelainheart #kintsugi #artlover #artcollection #interiordesign #interiorart #lifephilosophy #instaart #paintings #art #inkart #healingart

"spring comes again" to love again is a endless cycle in life, a hard one for many. The beauty is the moment, no matter how much the heart breaks we need to take up the courage to love again, as love is the meaning of life. Nothing will fill a void, only love forms compassion and compassion forms forgiveness, and forgiveness to yourself would open up opportunities to love again. #contemporarypainting #contemporaryart #chinesepainting #sumipainting #porcelainart #weilunha #nzart #nzartist #fragilheart #porcelain #porcelainheart #kintsugi #artlover #artcollection #interiordesign #interiorart #lifephilosophy #instaart #paintings #art #inkart #healingart

Bamboo being a resilient material for building things, is also the symbol of self control. No matter how much wind blows you may buckle but you won't break. Being the only bird in that patch of forest might be a risk, but if you are willing, you would be the first to discover a new world beyond your own. #paintingdetails #nzart #nzartist #weilunha #inkart #japanesepainting #artheals #artistsoninstagram #artwork #artcollector #artcollection #artcollectoritems #artcollector #interiorart #japaneseart #chineseart #nzart #nzartist

"Sometimes being alone makes us stronger". Don't get me wrong, we all deserve someone to love and be loved. Self journey is a important piece in life. We all. Need growth and we all need to see the world in different spaces. #contemporarypainting #contemporaryart #chinesepainting #sumipainting #porcelainart #weilunha #nzart #nzartist #fragilheart #porcelain #porcelainheart #kintsugi #artlover #artcollection #interiordesign #interiorart #lifephilosophy #instaart #paintings #art #inkart #healingart

Sometimes views in life are like subtle drops of paint that disappear in the background. You need to look beyond to see a fuller picture. #paintingdetails #contemporarypainting #contemporaryart #chinesepainting #sumipainting #porcelain

"a quiet heart beat" only the ones closest to you can hear what you desire the most and they are the only ones that can pull on your heart strings. Can you see a waterfall behind those trees? Seeing a painting up close and afar is a different experience all together. #contemporarypainting #contemporaryart #chinesepainting #sumipainting #porcelainart #weilunha #nzart #nzartist #fragilheart #porcelain #porcelainheart #kintsugi #artlover #artcollection #interiordesign #interiorart #lifephilosophy #instaart #paintings #art #inkart #healingart

I still remembered it like yesterday when I was talking to Chris Parkin about how many times I had to enter to get into the parkins drawing prize. I was almost to give up hope after my 5th year in entering. Then the miracle happened and I got the merit award for that year. Then 2 years around I got my second merit award. Its always cool to revisit journeys as they take you to a place that reminds you to always have hope. #contemporarypainting #contemporaryart #chinesepainting #sumipainting #porcelainart #weilunha #nzart #nzartist #fragilheart #porcelain #porcelainheart #kintsugi #artlover #artcollection #interiordesign #interiorart #lifephilosophy #instaart #paintings #art #inkart #healingart

When you have a wall but it's not really the ratio for a painting... You paint the wall instead. #contemporarypainting #contemporaryart #chinesepainting #sumipainting #weilunha #nzart #nzartist #interiorart #interiordesign #muralart #mural

A open heart with threads of fate guiding the life after the artist. Layers of darkness, layers of green, layers of nz. Hommage to the great nz artist Bill Hammond. #billhammond #nzart #nzartist #weilunha #inkart #healingart #contemporarypainting #japaneseart #kintsugi #contemporaryart #artcollector #artcollection #interiordesign #interiorart #lifephilosophy #instaart #paintings #art #inkart #healingart #contemporarypainting

These guys are absolute legends ❤️. I love how the frame brings the artwork to a whole new level. Thanks @cityartdepot for the awesome framework and providing me with the pictures.

Afterlife of an artist, Connecting hearts. One of my hero's in art Bill hammond has inspired me to do what I want to do and to do it in Confidence. Precious yet fragile the heart is something on my mind at all times. Connecting people with art has always been a dream of mine. It's rewarding to see people connecting with the art as I poured my heart into all corners of the work. #contemporarypainting #contemporaryart #chinesepainting #sumipainting #porcelainart #weilunha #nzart #nzartist #fragilheart #porcelain #porcelainheart #kintsugi #artlover #artcollection #interiordesign #interiorart #lifephilosophy #instaart #paintings #art #inkart #healingart #billhammond

Finally had a chance to check it out. Thanks @parnellauckland for such a cool spot and @whaletales2022 for selecting my work. #publicart #contemporarypainting #contemporaryart #chinesepainting #artcollection #artcollectoritems #artcollector #interiorart #japaneseart #chineseart #nzart #nzartist #weilunha #kintsugi #contemporarysculpture #whalestale2022

I had to revisit the afterlife series after a dream I had. I was told to do what Iike and to do it with passion, not to be chained by money. I woke up and flooded the painting with details. Bill hammond the artist was a great inspiration to me during my college years as a art student. I hope I can carry on a legacy and form my own style that is equally loved by New Zealanders across the globe. #artcollection #interiordesign #interiorart #lifephilosophy #instaart #paintings #art #inkart #healingart #contemporarypainting #japaneseart #kintsugi #contemporaryart #artcollector #billhammond #weilunha #nzart #nzartist #fragilheart #porcelain #porcelainheart #porcelainart

Big and simple on canvas. I was always interested in shapes and relationships. The architecture in me always wants explore material textures and structure that breaks and form tension between objects and shapes. It's so fun expanding small works and seeing then big. Materials:ink, acrylic on canvas.

When the back is just as detailed as the front πŸ‘€. 3 days solid working days to get this all done and glazed. Sorta reminds me of the birken bags from hermes, humbles me when craft and art combines to create quality goods. Breaks my heart to see it leave my shelf, but it's even better when you know its with a friend that would enjoy it everyday. #contemporarypainting #contemporaryart #chinesepainting #sumipainting #porcelainart #weilunha #nzart #nzartist #fragilheart #porcelain #porcelainheart #kintsugi #artlover #artcollection #interiordesign #interiorart #lifephilosophy #instaart #paintings #art #inkart #healingart #contemporarypainting #japaneseart #kintsugi

My favourite shape to paint ❤️. Was inspired by a friend that kept pushing me to do sculptures. Special shout to college friend jen for being so supportive with this commission.

Pt 2 for my fun project with pottery painting. Princess mononoke was a childhood favourite for me. The film taught me how to love nature and respect our resources on earth. #princessmononoke #princessmononokeart #princessmononokevase #porcelainghibliart #ghibliarts #ghibli #porcelain #porcelainart #nzart #nzartist #weilunha

Honestly the most fun project to do. Ghibli films have been a close part to my heart since childhood and many anime fans around the world. Ironically pottery was the first photography and the first film we had in art. It recorded history and stories. In my case I did 4 special sub scenes and 4 of my favourite characters in the my neighbour totoro series. #myneighbourtotoro #ghiblifilms #ghibliarts #totoro #vase #housedecorations #porcelain #porcelainart #contemporarypainting #contemporaryart #japaneseart #japaneseanime #nzart #nzartist #weilunha #kintsugi #contemporarysculpture #animefilms #Collectorsitem

My new setup. Chinese medicine box for all my watercolours and vase. I guess the old architecture is rubbing off on me again, I am a ritualistic painter. I can't do plastic flowers πŸ˜… so it's either the real deal or nothing in the house. #installationart #nzart #nzartist #weilunha #inkart #japanesepainting #instagood #instagramart #interiorart #interiordesign

Woke up this morning and realised I hord blue and white objects. #arthorder #artcollection #artcollectoritems #artcollector #interiorart #japaneseart #chineseart #nzart #nzartist #weilunha #porcelain #contemporarypainting #contemporaryart #windowdisplay

Close up detail of why I was so touched when I saw Bill Hammonds works. His works were a form of story telling.

Title:"Afterlife of an artist" I was very sad when I found out one of my heroes in life, Bill W. D Hammond passed away. Bill was a very humble person and would shy away from photos, he was a philanthropy artist that helped the country during the Christchurch earthquake. I found his art inspired me in many ways during my college painting years. 2016 was the year I won my very first vermont art prize and was invited to the Rannoch for dinner. The paint I saw that day was the exact one I painted for my artist model, I remember it like yesterday how I stared at it for 5 minutes and time froze. The name of the piece : "waiting for buller". Its been close to a year now and I feel I want to let out my feelings and allow a great artist to shine again. R. I. P to a great artist, you won't be forgotten. #billhammond #weilunha #nzart #nzartist #fragilheart #porcelain #porcelainheart #kintsugi #artlover #artcollection #interiordesign #interiorart #lifephilosophy #instaart #paintings #art #inkart #healingart #contemporarypainting #japaneseart #kintsugi #contemporaryart #artcollector

Don't ask why I wear the same thing over and over again. Artist can only have one set a year 🀣. Finally done and off with the posing 😝. Special thanks at @whaletales2022 and special shout to Lucy for being there with loads of questions and answers . @resenecolour for helping out materials. @parnellauckland for being such incredible people that always sponsors artist when they want to make cool works. #contemporarypainting #contemporaryart #chinesepainting #nzart #nzartist #weilunha #kintsugi #contemporarysculpture #whalestale2022 #artcollection #artcollectoritems #artcollector #interiorart

Work in progress. Scale is everything. Project @whaletales2022.
