Art is a way to connect and disconnect with the whole world. There is a way to reach out to people by expressing my real self and be real me, which is to make ART. I can be 100% honest to myself and to others; I can show how I feel without too much of elaboration; I can decide and control in my own world. Sometimes words get in the way. Art helps me to meditate and observe. Art is no longer a “want-to-do”, but a “got-to-do” in life.  I need it to support my own existence. There is no need for me to speak up, to shout and to scream out loud. Art shows me a way out in life, and it follows me everywhere I go. My work has given me a passport to my own world and to reach out others’ world.
