“The method I used to depict what I've seen is affected by my life experiences growing up, the aesthetic that I have developed through my perception, and how I started to feel deeply connected to the accumulation of these things.”
“When people are finally tired of labouring in the 'civilised society', they often crave to return to nature; to find the 'true nature' that resonates in their hearts and souls. It's like the radian of a compass, which will always return to where it started.”

“My work is about how I observe life from a different point of view: as an ‘outsider’ that is detached from the reality of this ‘real-world’. It's about expressing love, and all things in life.”
