"LONGING"

The first is a sign of compromising. The feeling of acceptance causes a sense of longing but the emotion can not possibly alter the reality.

Décalcomanie

This diptych painting is a metaphorical depiction of my left and right hands. Having to only use one hand dominantly to paint each side, the experiments with my ambidexterity personify the characteristic of each hand.

"RAW"

The visceral quality of the painting provides 'raw' texture on the realistically depicted skin opposed to the chaotic background.

"SHUTTER EXPRESSION"

It is about relationships. We sub-consciously interact with other through less lingual but more intutive communication. It is too instant sometime as much as camera shutter.

"WHY?"

The feeling extracted is strikingly visceral yet saturating with prime colours.

"I AM SORRY MOM"

Mainly focusing on blurring the boundary between the figurative and the abstract, my mother's lips have been objectified as my obsessiveness.

"WARHOL"

Your work has an emotional intensity that caught my eye. Your style is a combination of the figurative and abstract realms. Why do you feel this style suits you personally as an artist? Can you tell me more about how your unique style was developed?

I worked as a commercial artist in animation and game companies. I had been aware of making mistakes and also obsessed not to make them. My attempt on abstraction was to allow myself to make mistakes. Having an abstract background filled with random and reluctant brush marks provides a contrast to the refinement of the portraiture. The figurative works as my reality and the abstract works as my subconscious. I am in my own conflict struggling between those two different stages.

You were highly influenced by comic book art as a child which inspired your career path as an animator. How did your passion for media art lead to a new career in painting?

I did not fully enjoy the idea of being told what to create and it resulted in a lack of creativity. I worked mostly digitally and felt a great sense of absence in my work. One day after work, I just naively painted on a canvas and fell in love with the physicality of painting. It felt way more tangible than the digital medium.

You are an Art Battle champion and you often paint with varying materials and ambidextrously. You take the live painting experience to the next level. Can you tell me more about your experiences with live painting?

Live painting is just another form of artistic expression. It provides me with an opportunity to engage with the audience. I initially wanted to challenge myself being in the atmosphere. I wanted to challenge myself even more with using both of my hands simultaneously. The idea of overcoming challenges keeps me working harder and being able to get to the next level. I also figure my left is masculine whereas my right is feminine. When I paint ambidextrously, the live-painting experience earns another value.

What inspires you to begin a new piece? Can you tell me more about your creative process?

I have many paintings with random marks on sitting in my studio. I paint when I genuinely feel the need. The common inspiration is my emotions. I find my emotions are often hard to extract. I become anxious to express and I just begin to paint with the intention of identifying that particular emotion.

You are fearless in regards to the mediums you use to create. Can you tell me more about the mediums you use and how you became so into experimentation?

I primarily use oil and acrylic but I draw with pen, graphite and markers. I do not think the medium matters that much because what I carry emotionally matters more.

What’s next for you? Do you have any upcoming projects you are looking forward to?

I want to live-paint worldwide. I want to engage with the audiences with different cultures. My next big project is organizing a collaborative show with my artist friend.
