For me, painting is an essential of my imagination. I pursue to embody elaborate fantasy world that can only exist in paintings.
I am interested in the instinctive, and the primitive qualities of human being. Such as animalism and ritualization. Through the process of painting, I want to reveal the concealable inner meanings of human behaviors in private and public situations. These behaviors constantly sway between the extremes of innate, and acquired human characteristics.
My painting is not literal narratives, rather dark suggestion of the hybrids from nomadic and urban existences, sophisticated and barbarian in equal measure.
