At some point, we get greedy and fight for each other. After that, we have a ceasefire with each other. And I hope to live in harmony with each other. I expressed harmony in the busy life of the city.

"My work is inspired by nature and experienced memories. In my life, people, surroundings, objects and places that have accompanied me through various experiences seem to remain as memories. The theme of my painting is to talk about the harmony of nature and memory on canvas. A plastic model toy I took with me when I was young. The architecture being built far away, the traffic lights waiting to cross the road, the beautiful sky and clouds with the sun setting. I am inspired by everything around me, including friends, family and people who don't know their names. I study my own way of expressing things that have passed and the process of living in the future. I'm trying to shape the image of the experiences and accompanying memories in my life."
