“I have lived almost my entire life in the big city. Living in the city, I depict what I feel in my own daily moments. In particular, I am interested in observing urban objects and enjoy spending time with them. The small plants in my paintings symbolise city dwellers. People often cannot resist the huge capital and power of the city, so, they try to modify or control their own words and behaviours. Sometimes the process of change is so sudden that we somehow encounter strange unexpected results. Nevertheless, I enjoy finding those strange and unfamiliar things. As I continue to live in the city, I often encounter beings that have similar experiences with me.”
