Billy Ma is a painter, sculptor, designer and illustrator.
He was born in Taiwan but raised in Canada.
Having never lived in Asia as an adult, Billy took a chance with his now wife and moved to Singapore for a new life adventure. He lived in the Lion City for over a decade before relocating to Vietnam in 2018.
2009 saw Billy growing restless with his job as an art director in innovation and so he began to flex his artistic skills via digital illustrations during his spare time.
With the popularity of the first images on social media and enquiries from interested buyers, Booda Brand - the limited-edition print company - was conceived.
This thriving little art company now sells all over the world and has been exhibited across Asia.
Drawing from contemporary themes, Billy seamlessly and naturally combines eastern and western aesthetics into his artwork. Many influences come from spirituality, socio-political issues and a sardonic sense of humour.
Billy now stands by a set of principles to guide Booda Brand artwork:
