For me, painting is an essential of my imagination. I pursue to embody elaborate fantasy worlds that can only exist in paintings.

I am interested in the instinctive and primitive qualities of human beings, such as animalism and ritualization. Through the process of painting, I want to reveal the concealable inner meanings of human behaviors in private and public situations. These behaviors constantly sway between the extremes of innate and acquired human characteristics.

My paintings are not literal narratives, but rather dark suggestions of the hybrids from nomadic and urban existences; sophisticated and barbarian in equal measure.
