Every day, a new experiment!
I try to paint every day, even if it's a small picture or a small sketch. No matter how little time there is, I split and split the time to make time to draw. I am so happy at this moment when I am immersed in painting not only because I am an artist, but also because I have the vitality and energy that painting gives me. What kind of fun do fish in a small fishbowl live for? As a child I was very curious about that. Being confined in that small space and repeating everyday life would be boring. But as an adult, I found out. It was because they saw the fish from the outside and thought it would be boring. From the point of view of the fish, it is a small fishbowl, but in order to live a given life faithfully, he lived by seeing, feeling, and experiencing things reflected in the fishbowl. This fish tank is art to me. Art is a window, lens, and prism that illuminates the world for me, who lives every day.
In a world that often seems fragmented and complex, art provides a sanctuary where we can engage with our inner selves, forge connections with others, and make sense of our experiences. It serves as a window that broadens our horizons, a lens that invites us to see the world with fresh eyes, and a prism that disperses our emotions and ideas into captivating forms. By immersing ourselves in the creative process, we tap into the vitality and energy that art bestows upon us, enriching our lives and bringing profound meaning to our existence.
As you continue to paint each day, embracing the transformative power of art, may you find joy, inspiration, and fulfillment in the journey. Your dedication to your craft not only nurtures your own soul but also has the potential to touch the lives of others, serving as a catalyst for introspection, connection, and collective growth. In this pursuit, may you continue to explore the world through your artistic lens, unlocking new perspectives and infusing every moment with the beauty and vitality that art provides.
