Each artist has different ideas in the journey of realizing their potential, and for me, my interest lies in geometric patterns and repetitive lines; that is where I explore the silent and meditative space, where the products of abstract knowledge seems to appear.
I have a long experience as a painter, and have worked on many techniques. Through these works, I invite the audiences to join in a spiritual journey in finding peace and beauty from within, regardless of the chaotic situations and disturbances which happen around us. All of my paintings are an effort to inspire and offer contemplative experiences to reflect back on our own lives.
For me, to paint on canvas is a way to express my freedom, that cannot be achieved through other activity.
