Statement I always want to express the different scenes of our times, especially the cityscapes as they are, and I keep them in the form of a diary that I update daily. The reality and the ideal, the fusion of the East and West are found in my drawings along with the various colors of my works. Unknown letters emerging from paintings filled with imaginative images -views of life utilizing the principle of harmony.
My work is a micro-universe, reflecting the society, amazing continuity, and incantational meanings that make possible the recovery of the unknown. The innumerable spots on the canvas are the main elements of an unconscious, repetitive behavior when indulging in painting, and are the important living elements in the structure of my canvas. This new approach has drawn upon my entire experience. The originality of my work consists in transforming the art.
