Art as a celebration of life is the goal for me. Since a very young age, the beauty of art subjects opens my inner vision, evoking a transcendental sense of existence. The mystical aura of the Eastern ink paintings and the flamboyant Western oil paintings all took me into a creative realm of awe and fascination about the human psyche.
My creative sources are from the observation of life, nature and living creatures. Portraits and landscape art are my passion. I study incessantly even if I do not have time to actually practice. This approach can accumulate knowledge and keeps the creative progress alive. Studying others’ work with intensity and looking into Nature passionately can inspire infinite creative potentials.
In my art, I strive for the sublimation of poetic expression.
Over half a century! (In a casual amateur sense.) Though I have worked as a graphic artist for about 20 years, I only count fine art as my art occupation, as a learner over a life span.
To share experiences; to mutually support each other; to eradicate the ‘starving artist’ syndrome! Let life blossom in something we love to do!
