During my traveling, I try to get the feelings of nature, human activities, ritual and spirituality. When I came to New York, I saw many interesting things. There were different kinds of people and life style. On the subway stations and the streets, I saw many interesting textures and colors, it happened automatically. When I use the objects on my paintings, objects loose their quality, they make their own languages. My personality is self-thought with spirituality. When I do my artwork with spirituality, I would go to the unconscious level.
