My pieces are based on my roots; my culture is embodied in stern traditions eclipsing of emotions and my life journey is reflected in my incorporation of contemporary techniques, and deviation from neutral colors. I think art is not just an element in someone’s life; art is a chance to change someone’s perspective about life. Each piece of my work tells a unique story about a phase of my life or an experience that changed me as a person. I take my ideas from understanding different cultures and different people I encounter in my daily life.
