One of the pillars that Gahyao was founded on was to push ourselves, both creatively and physically - to always try something new.
Growing up in the 90s, skateboarding and punk rock were definitely a subculture in HK (more so in Manila), so I was naturally drawn to graffiti and tattoo culture too.
Graffiti was something I always admired from a distance, I never thought I’d have the hands or the skill set to get something up from scratch.
Last October I decided to take that insecurity and break it, to go out there and try it myself.
The end result was not what I had in my head, but the hardest part is done, now I can only push forward.
After all, it all starts with a decision.
