My body of work intends to affect audience emotionally and critical as a result of embodying a deadly medical issue which is leukaemia. Leukaemia occurs when someone has too much white blood cells and his/her bone marrow is affected by that and failing to produce normal blood cells. This let people to die within long-term if not cured

My idea is to beautifully depict or paint the deadly 5 different white blood cells as patterns on canvas with posterised colours using paint pen/markers borrowing pop arts techniques mainly from Andy Warhol and David Hockney.

This would be perceived by audience ironically and critical because of the fact that people see white blood cells are deadly. The audience would interact with my artwork and admire the beautiful patterns with classic colours but when they come to realise that they are the deadly cells which can kill people with constant pains in long-term, the audience would be critically affected and amazed.
