In Gucci: 6 Malaysian Artists On Self-Expression And Individualism

Not the ones to shy away from the limelight, these creatives whose work reflect an unfiltered sense of self-expression are the true embodiment of individualism.

If there is one thing we took away from the Gucci Pre-Fall 2019 collection is the idea of "cultural juxtaposition", an idea strongly envisioned by creative director Alessandro Michele.

That idea looks towards counter-cultural groups, ones that stand out of the norm, who co-existed naturally, bringing a new meaning to self-expression and individualism. That brings us to the attention of a special collaboration between L'Officiel Malaysia and Gucci, where we feature six artists, each an expert in his/her respective fields, in an exclusive shoot to tell a story of what they think of individualism and self-expression.

“Tattoo is one of the things in the world that lasts a long time. I love to create designs that tell a story or evoke emotions, as I am usually emotional.”


Mandee Lee (@mandeemoko):

“I love how tattoo ages on human skin. Get tattooed, grow old and be buried with your tattoo. It gives depth to your personality and enhances your aura.”
