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 I now understand how things appear in any invisible trend. That inspired me to present it visually. Therefore, I am engaged in art experiments on materials as metaphors to indicate the essence of a balanced context of natural substances, which helps us all navigate sanity and get a sense of peace with each other and 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

My creative journey juxtaposes tradition and innovation, organic and artificial, coincidence and deliberate. With the traditional material representing both the tangible and intangible aspects of life, this interplay invites viewers to explore deeply the complexities of human existence, contemplating the delicate balance between contrasts and harmonies. I use the limitless possibilities of artistic expression to create a universal dialogue involving the coexistence of diversity.
