“When I was around 10 years old, I enjoyed seeing the sunset just outside my house. The sunset was so beautiful that its beautifulness could not be described in a few words. That sense of memory and reflection still exists in my heart like a big picture. Focusing on color, shape, similarity, difference, harmony, complexity, and so on is a good reference for guiding to the true meaning of art. Especially, my work is a way of bringing beautiful memories to life by expressing them as color and shape.”
