Activity history

My work theme is "philosophy" that we meet in daily life.
We meet many“Question”and“Awareness”.
I call them “Song of Life”.

At the beginning,I thought and expressed these questions and awareness as something personal .
Gradually ,I realized that people sympathize to my works ,wherever they come from , or whatever they believe .
And I thought that is a proof that human beings are all "same ".

Laugh,cry,envy,anger,dreaming,and thinking about somebody deeply ...
I 'm paying attention to those movements of a human heart, that will never change.

If we could have time to overlook our own existence ,and care about each other more humbly,
We could bring up a comfortable world for any creatures.
Now,I'm making my works with such a hope.

My work is mixed media, acrylic gouache, oil pastel and collage mainly.
And I attach a short sentence which is concept of my work.
