My artwork takes a critical view of human life. Inspired by a personal near death experience, my work revisits the question that everyone has asked themselves, but has forgotten without finding any clear answer: what is the purpose of human life and existence? Having engaged topics of the circle of life, aura, and nature, my work incorporates eastern and western cultures, religions, and science to have a big emphasys on how it can be discussed in a different language, but ultimately speaks the same. While having the consistent methodology, mainly used materials are continuous, flexible, and authentic to bring out the focus of the topic. As an artist, I would like to spark the discussion through the medium to continue or conclude their thoughts on human life in their own way.
