Artist Statement:

    I have been an artist since I was a child. I have been drawing and painting since I was 10, and I was even awarded several art prizes during my school years. I have no academic background apart from this. Prior to finishing primary school, my drawing teacher advised me to devote myself to the study of art, but my narrowminded parents discouraged me and didn’t support my idea, so I had to resign and attend secondary school.

    Now I am a professional artist. I need to create. Art gives me power and releases my fancy. The only thing I do as a hobby is write poems in English from time to time.

    I consider myself a fine artist who uses the computer as a pictorial technique. I feel truly free using my computer to create art. It offers me a creative world full of boundless possibilities.

    I have used many software programs (including AutoCAD and 3DStudioMax). My main goal with the computer is to produce fine art, not high-tech design. I feel very comfortable working with several 2D and 3D programs like Photoshop, Corel, Painter, Bryce, and Poser.

    The best explanation of my creative process in front of the computer is that there’s no fixed outline. Presently, I am particularly involved in surrealism and in quest of a new language for digital abstractionism.

    I am usually very anarchic in my creative process. The most outstanding feature of my work is that it bears the sign of a spiritual perfectionist.
