• Hi, 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 adult life
    using my first love (drawing) to remind the world to First, Love (begin with love)

     

    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 kids 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

  • About Peter Draw

    Artist

    Bio

    Peter Draw (Born Peter Zhuo Ying Wei 卓英伟, July 1984) is a Singaporean Artist who uses his first love (Drawing) to remind the world to First, Love (Begin with love)

     

    Peter fell in love with drawing at the age of 3. At 6, he was kicked out of art class because he couldn't afford the fee. At 16, he lost his grandfather who taught him one last lesson - our loved ones cannot wait forever for us.. hesitate and we will lose our chance to show our love forever.


    Since then, he has devoted the whole of his entire adult life drawing to protect children who cannot protect themselves.

  • 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 :)

    Singapore

    I used to be just like them :)

    Fukushima, Japan

    Love can be found anywhere :)

    Alajuela, Costa Rica

    Time is love

    Sometimes we don't realise the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory.

    Always choose love.

    How we spend our days become our life.

  •  

     

     

     

    From day one, it's always about the little ones

     

    I believe our future must be built on love.

  • 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, tiptoed 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。
