About me

Since living in two different cultures for many years, I gradually became aware of the relationship between individual psychology and social culture, and now understand how things appear in any invisible trend. This inspired me to present it visually. Therefore I am engaged in art experiments on materials as metaphors to indicate the essence of balanced context of natural substances, which helps us all navigate sanity and get a sense of peace with each other, with the world.

“Peace is not absence of war; peace is a virtue, an attitude of mind, an inclination to goodness, trust, justice.”
                                       — Baruch Benedictus de Spinoza
