Quick Facts

Corrugated cardboard is an inevitable by-product of modern mass production and transportation systems. The cardboard, with winding symmetrical curves on its surface, stands for its necessary usage in today's commercial society as a reliable packaging medium. In my work, cardboard that has tacitly and murmurlessly finished its role as containers, protectors, and transporters of mass produced goods symbolizes a regeneration and a revival.


In fact, I feel fairly limited when it comes to using oil colors as a sole medium of expressing textures. Instead, I cut and form soft and attractive cardboard into small pieces and attach them together before adding the color and creating a sense of a sculpted paper form.   


In my work, a world of coexistence for tightly interrelated people and a gorgeous nature creates a harmonized "a cappella". In a world where individuals are destined to fall into a state of lethargy under a suffocating social structure, I believe my work quietly reflects my wishes to create a lively world where people find their purpose and meaning from one another
