The last 27 years have been an island. For me, drawing a picture is an island with a treasure trove that makes you forget everything once you start dancing, although it can be tense, as Billy Elliot said. When it was infinitely low, the small daily life began to appear as a wonderful treasure through the window of the mind. Even today, the image of the'father' who worked for the family more than his own ability and barely holding the handrail of the subway, and the image of the'mother' carrying a suckling child with a tired look and messy hair as if he was sleeping were beautiful. In 1995, when I was working in a small room in an apartment, I was immersed in copper prints. Because the space was small, I cut the copper plate into 10x10cm size and corroded it, and then connected the images, but the numerous attempts made due to the uncomfortable environment accumulated and became my asset. Copper engraving tools such as squeegee, needle, cotton cloth, and mesh are the tools that are used to work with brushes. When I saw the work of Antonio Tapie of Spain, a graffiti art (graffiti) writer, the rough texture of the building material was attractive and my heart started to jump. My stereotypes about the ingredients were broken, and the ingredients I found while searching for them came back as a great gift to me. Even now, when I paint, I get soaked in the happiness of a child holding candy in both hands.

Meraki: In Greek, It means 'Putting all of one person's everything into something with all their heart, creativity and love'
