"Whatever you want to do, the only secret is to believe in it and satisfy yourself. Don't do it for anyone else."
“Living with anxiety is like being followed by a voice. It knows all your insecurities and use them against you. It gets to the point when it's the loudest voice in the room."
"Please the eye and gratify the mind. These artworks are like a barrel full of contradictions. The background is made out of simplistic drawings and text which are all linked together. The se drawings and texts are always teasing the mind to think about life, philosophy, stories and lessons. However, to be able to gratify the eyes and lure the viewer in, the background is always covered up with relevant and more skillful & beautiful imagery."
"Whereas a child would probably make these type of drawings and artworks, an adult wouldn't anymore. As we grow up we tend to become more afraid of trying and failing. Along the way of adulthood, we often find ourselves doubting whether we are good enough. As an artist I continuously aim to capture that fearless vibrant juvenile energy. It's a kind of vibe to show that a life should be lived. We are not merely existing. We are living."
Now you're probably starting to believe I am definitely using child labor in order to make my art. Well, answer is still 'no'. I guess I just saw a lot of artists trying to emulate that childish energy. But when viewing their works, I always thought:
"Although it looks childish, it still feels like a professional artist has made it. Isn't there a better and perhaps more effective way to succeed in capturing that chaotic and brave spirit?"
