I have always been deeply seduced by lettersforms since I was a teenager.
Written language is not only a complex system of communication, but the realm of style and form. To express perceptions or sensibilities through syntax, letterform and rhythm represents the most complete of all messages to me.
In the calligraphic arts, I found the way to convey my inner thoughts and reflections about life. My main interest is to mingle and blend diverse disciplines: art, design, sumie-e and calligraphy to challenge the limits of conceptual art and techniques.
But my ultimate thought could be expressed in Sandra R Wagner words: ˝in art lies my sanity˝.
I have devoted a significant portion of my life to art.
