Generally, my painting represents my emotions and personal stories. For instance, I seek the re-creation of images that I have seen in dreams, the emotions involved in relationships with others and their individual characters, and my own interpretation of daily objects and the nature. These elements are expressed as characters, lines, letters, and symbols in my drawings.

I have two different approaches: dividing the space while ignoring perspective, and using the quality of the lines themselves. These show up together in each drawing. 

My favorite materials are charcoal, pencil, oil pastel and acrylic. Especially I’d prefer using pencil and charcoal for drawings because I like the feeling of vividness, roughness and rawness. To me, oil pastel is always one of my favorite materials because the material arouses my nostalgic childhood.

I try to open each viewer’s imagination though the creation of ambiguous characters that are intended to be suggestions. They are open to interpretation from each person’s perspective.
