I stepped into the art world in 1995 when I was 8.
My work shows the world beyond race and gender and explores the inner side of humankind using various colors.
As an artist, I wanted to remove prejudice among people based on their appearance and focus more on the inner side of humankind.

That’s why I got obsessed with epidermis.
Inspired by thermal imaging camera, I started to reinterpret it using various colors in a form of thermal imaging and remove the actual image of epidermis that can be seen with our naked eyes.
