PROFILE

The wonder of existence. Which comes first, “Images” or “material / media”? When I want to draw a picture and to express, it is when I realize that the world is changing and I want to leave that image in some form. “Images / Themes” that I want to express come first, then I choose the optimum “ material / media” and I create art works. In contrast, there is a material I was inspired by and I want to use it,  then I look for “Images /Themes” and express it. I have five major expression styles (Watercolor / Chinese ink / Phase / Aesthetic consciousness /View) from when I was in university to the present.
