How did you develop your style of bright intricate patterns layered on top of portraits?

 

I was so into many countries' old culture and traditional culture. And I still do. They have lots of different patterns and structure of buildings. and that makes me so into cultural mix of patterns/Colors, It became part of my skills.

Did you have some difficulties with being an artist? Is it hard for you (money, customers, time) ?

 

Everyone can feel those kind difficulties even they are not an artist. So I didn't think money or something is the difficulties in my life as an artist. It's natural living experience which get used to it 

What is your true dream, the one that keeps you up at night and if one day it were to come true you would feel peace and calmness in your heart?

 

Actually I'm not sure that I want to become myself a big successful artist or to have a lot of money or just I want peace for myself and other people around me. But definitely I want to be good at my art more and more. That's only what I wish since I started to make art. And maybe someday I will manage to teach for free, many young artist who want to learn something from me, and also to support their lives and their desire for the art. Because when I was young, I wanted to know about drawing and art stuff, but there was no one around to lean on.
