"I use painting/drawing as my communication tool. I read voice from visual arts from any culture and from every history to translate them into a contemporary visual language. I interpreted my universe into something visible. By floating in between the countries, languages, and cultures give a more clear vision of myself, and I think I gain more vocabularies in my own culture and my own language."

"My artwork is about the hole of a donut where it holds the shape of a donut. This empty space is a coexistence of a void and form where it becomes ONE.  I see the city of Inglewood as a center of the donut where it becomes the microcosmic world of the city that holds together the community and neighborhoods."
What is the Hole of Donuts?

"Everything. I try to draw/paint everything in my life to make something of “Void”. Everything means everything: every moment, every single breath, feeling, experience, myself, others, family, friends, acquaintance, stranger, culture, nature, future, history, etc. The senses of everything are coming and going and totality of all the things in the cosmos. Everything I know and everything I don’t know effects and attracts me to painting/drawing."
