bio:

Hailing from the Philippines, Yap completed a Bachelor of Art Education (Hons) from the College of Fine Arts [UNSW Art & Design]. Yap contributes consistently to all academic, professional and community projects. Creative education is a powerful motivator. Self expression is most important in the holistic development of students in a school setting. With want to engage and capacitate this within the subject of Visual Arts; to purpose both concept-to-product circulation alongside the development of reflexive attitudes for later life. Kieth’s goal is eventually continue post-graduate studies, within the fields of Public Art & Law.

statement:

Multi-skilling became part of what it took to train as an Art Teacher for high schools. My trademark graphic-graphite trace & draw pieces have always been accentuated by colour. My work marks the passing, pondering and commemoration of life both fantastical and at times, fabricated. Majoring in printmaking, the element of multiplicity will co-depend on the ideations of Kiethdos (a Cementa-ism) where I will be making memories with strangers in a new space; where the neon work, reflection and shapes should complete the process.
