• I'm Peter Draw (B. 1984)

     

    As a child, I once believed that Picasso & Disney were the same person, and I spent my childhood drawing... dreaming one day I could be like this person.

     

    Growing up, I realised that not everyone can be a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere. I've lost loved ones, had my heart broken time and time again... but I continue to believe in love and believe that love can change the world.

     

    Some people don't spend their time being bothered that they can't change the world, because there's a part of them that thinks it's impossible.
    I choose to be bothered by that.

     

    I've devoted the last 16 years, the whole of my entire adult life making just one Art Work
    "Love don't have to make sense... to make sense"

     

    16 years later, it still feels like Day One.

     

    First, Love
    起点, 爱

  • "Peter's dedication of the whole of his entire adult life, drawing to protect children who cannot protect themselves, has warmed the hearts of many children and adults alike, including me.

     

    What you love has become your life. I hope your story will inspire even more people to find the courage to pursue and never give up on their dream."

    - Jackie Chan

  • I believe..

    Being an Artist isn't a dream. It's about what I do as an Artist.
    I think that's what a dream is.

  • "It's true we can't protect every child. But for those we can, we must. This is why I draw." 

     

  • My dream

    One day, I hope to sit my children and grandchildren on a swing, telling them how a little boy who was told he couldn't draw went on to draw and change the world.

     

    Here are some stories I've been keeping for them :)

  • About Ai

    The Inspiration Behind Ai

    Ai

    When Peter was 6 years old (1990), Peter signed up for a free trial art lesson. On the actual day, Peter packed his little bag packed with sharpen pencils and walked to the art class by himself. When the Artist told everyone to bring along $20 for the next lesson, Peter told the Artist that his parents would not be able to afford the $20. The Artist told Peter to forget about drawing and kicked him out of the class.

     

    Peter stood outside the class, tie-toed to try to look through the tiny space between the window panels hoping to learn something. After a while, Peter's toes hurt and he ran home and cry. His grandfather asked him why is he crying. Peter asked why is he different from other children. His grandfather replied "Why do you want to be the same?"

     

    Grandfather then told Peter a story about how a little boy who was kicked out of art class because he was poor, believed in his dream and became a successful artist. Before he died, he created Disney Land. His name was, Picasso.

     

    Growing up, Peter believed that Picasso and Disney were the same person. Peter's grandfather didn't went to school, and made up the story to encourage Peter.

     

    This story inspired the creation of Ai.
    Ai represents the idea that no matter how we begin our life, we all eventually find love.

  • Here's a little secret

    As a child, I love eating donuts. In Primary One, my teacher asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up. She told me I needed to find another dream because she explained to me that nobody can grow up to be a Donut.
     

    I explained I love eating Donuts and if I became a Donut, i could eat it whenever I want to. She then asked me what happens when I finish eating myself and I told her confidently, I’m a kid... I didn’t think that far.

     

    Thankfully, I have a second dream and that is to be an Artist who makes art to make people happy.

     

    When you feel like giving up... don't.

  • 30 Years From Now

    A real man in the dark, when nobody is watching, he's putting in the work. 
    30 Years from now, we will see who was really working.

    Thoughts..

    Some people don't spend their time being bothered that they can't change the world, because there's a part of them that thinks it's impossible.
     

    I choose to be bothered by that.
     

    人は無理だと思っているから、世界を変えようとしない。
     

    私は世界を変える道を選んだ。
