Artist Statement
           
 
            Through the border between the artist and the audience, I desire to depict the world both in visual and spiritual sense. In my belief, art was what drew me nearer to the world, yet helped me see it from a different eye. 

            My ideology is to express the world’s spiritual presence through introspection and contemplation. The creating progress is based on spontaneity, resistance, unintentional, and simplification as well. In this manner, I continuously develop a relationship between colors, shapes, portions, lines and mediums and make bold manifestation on the canvas in a large, gestural, abstract form which opens up to the infinite possibilities of connection through exploration of the world surrounding and within us. The classification of my abstract style can be observed as all kind of relationships.
