Learning from Macao chose to make the casino buildings the protagonist of the drawing and the proud symbol of Macao, which are featured with intricate decoration or exaggerated shapes. Also refering to the interface design of casino games as a reference for urban planning, the artwork presents a visual fantasy about the city’s distinctive urban culture. Historic and contemporary, architect-designed and vernacular, real and fictional constructions are mixed and collaged in the world of game. As a commission by the Cultural Affairs Bureau of the Macao SAR,  Learning from Macao is a large mural DAS created for Art Macao: Macao International Art Biennale 2021, and is installed on the outer wall at The Handover Gifts Museum of Macao. The artwork has also been acquired by Macao Museum of Art for its permanent collection.
