Since I started my career as an artist in 1995, I have been constantly on an artistic journey expressing my inner persona, but at one point, the false beauty created by the illusion of materialism and mass media confused my senses and eroded my true self. When my artistic journey stopped in the dark around 2005, a ray of light shone deep into my heart. At that moment, I faced the bride in a garland as if I were looking at my face in front of a mirror. The image symbolized the existence of a pure soul and made me feel the message that the true me, who had taken off all artificial character, came back and healed.
