-Theme of my art-

We see terror attacks occurring every day somewhere in the world, which cause many casualties. As seeing desire and hate of human being increasing these days, I was distressed and eagerly tried to find something I could do with the power of art as a creator. I heartily wish to represent with my works voices of those children who cannot appeal in their own words. In human being, tenderness arises from love, and heart is enriched through love. I earnestly wish to stay close to the hearts of those who watch my works filled with tender love, and to enrich their hearts. I will be executing my works hoping the whole world filled with some love and peace.
