  Sometimes people think and talk about 'What is Art?', and try to find the answer though they never can't get the right answer. Art is often thought as difficult and high-toned thing, but most of the Art come from the people's ordinary life. Artist is just one of the ordinary people, Artist is just cutting off the part of these ordinary life, and shape it into their artworks.
  Artist can't exist at the place without peaceful life. Real art may exist in battlefield, but Artist can't live in battlefield. 'Existence of Artist' could be proof of Peaceful, and Artist should be aware of that fact.
  Practically, Artworks are useless and nothing for use. But they sometimes give us little happiness, sometimes become the source of great power, I'll try to bring out these kind of feelings or power to the people's life. That's my job as an Artist.
