STATEMENT

The relationship between natural and human beings is the inspiration for most of my creations. The great love the nature gives to the human beings is the message I would like to deliver through my artworks. Nature is our house! Therefore, my work raises questions: “Do we have any solution for the surviving and development of both the human beings and the nature? What are we doing here and where are we going with our civilization?”
