About My Work

In my attempt to search for the invisible energy of life I draw streets and arcades, places where things and crowds gather, all driven by a dynamic force to discover the significance of signs and neon lights. There is a potential craving on the part of the city to self-evolve with living phantoms, which are unable to exist without inciting endless desire.

I also want to express the progress made to find the essence of energy, changing its shape without focusing on any one particular point. It is the symbol of a modern city by emphasizing the absence as well as the similarity between the progress of a "life" born in the living city and the identity of a human being that continuously pursues something, adapting himself to the change of environment.
