”I love painting, drawing, collecting many things, cooking and Doraemon, as well as many other oriental characters. I also love music, the sun, snow, containers, letters, flowers, cats, neon lights and Chinatown. Right now, I enjoy warm days, rest and relaxation and great light to work.
I am currently working on a series, which is a representation of maps of the sky, the stars, and their inspiring intensity. I am also creating new maps and I am particularly interested by object transitions within the same spatial overlap.”
