My style has been formulated through whimsical, happy thoughts into a
realistic interpretation. Basically, it's a dream come true scenario flows
deeply from a challenging origin.

Ironically, my works are inspired by real events, personal experiences and
human characteristics. A childlike, with a touch of strong, colorful and playful
surprises mixed with dark controversial atmosphere. The detailed elements
intertwining with blurry, scratchy background provokes a seamless question.
They were blended with vintage-classic style while at the same time exist
on the variations of the modern era.

I intend to convey them in an illustrative manner to balance the whole story
and get a proper outcome. It is something I would describe as adorable,
doubtful, loved, controversial and a tragic piece.

I always wanted my viewer to get involved and interact with my artworks.
Either love or hate, whichever it is, both strong feelings matter to me as long
as they comprehend and satisfied with the interpretations. That is the reason
why the titles of all my paintings are in question forms.
