By Emma Rios & Hwei Lim

Artistic creation is a compulsion. An artist pursues their craft not out of whimsy but a deep-seated need. It is not something which may be set aside lightly; indeed, it is an essential aspect of their identity. Be it music, writing, the visual arts or any other medium, their emotional happiness is incomplete without it. It does not require for success, though many may desire it, the largest stage or the brightest spotlight, only the space for conjuring the artist’s own distinct vision.

Wonder Woman opens June 2nd.
