The underlying philosophy behind my artwork is simply to reflect the events happening around me at this very moment in time, and to voice out my personal opinions in art form.Whether it be on human rights, the role and effectiveness of political organizations such as the United Nations, freedom in a post modern era, technology and its impact on human life, women's rights and other issues, with a combination of colors and images I speak for a cause. In today's fast paced five-second-attention span and provocative world, I have tried to use a unique technique and style to say what I want to say. I have a message in my work and I want my audience to connect with that underlining significance. I am rewarded when visitors and art lovers are able to connect with my work and feel what I feel rather than see what they see.
