I grew up with smelling industrial oils and listening to machine noises of a factory in a small town surrounded by mountains. My earlier memories when I was little are muggy and repulsively ugly. A torn and scattered disposed mannequin in a vacant lot, a dog in two pieces, a smell of death, a strange movie poster, glaring eyes and yelling mother. There is a feeling of dizziness and a smell of death under a hot, humid gleaming summer sun implanted deep inside of me.

My paintings are the reflection of the release from feelings, memories, words that are unable to processed and keep smoldering within me, from something personal to events in the society, A small or large something I associated and/or my own. These are all lovable, funny and defective.
I paint and transmit the true world I see through my own filters after ruminated number of times in my mind. The color of the filters are red, black and white.
This is the way I associate with my world and the way I communicate.

I use ballpoint pen and acrylic gouache. I choose them so I can truly reflect my mind the way I view.
