Artist Statement

Excitement is overwhelming in our daily life. Mixing with people at various places, we find sparkling joy in their eyes. All things we see in this world, as well as the color and beautiful form, make our heart throb. By describing such great people, I find a story of excitement. Painting itself is also a behavior of excitement. It’s beyond calculation that I don’t know what form comes next. Suddenly, life resides there. I paint with pleasure and feeling. Excitement is in the splendor of being alive. It’s in breathing while we enjoy every feeling in every moment and a pleasant breeze. I want to paint a world where viewers can see this lively feeling of happiness. By producing paintings, I want to expand the infinity of the world of excitement.
