I'm going to introduce a little bit about myself on this page and update every month, so that I can connect with you better and hope that you feel my artworks closer.
Introducing PEAR 2 and PEAR 3
acrylic and oil stick on canvas
24 x 30 inches
I made a small scale of this "Pear series" and got many attentions here and from the U.K. so decided to make similar ones in a larger scale. It looks like pear/abstract to me, but when I showed these to a good friend of mine, she said "Especially PEAR 3 looks like a cow and interesting." She even explained to me where eyes and nose are, but I could see what she was seeing. That's why art is interesting. The painter says "this is a pear" but a viewer says "No, this is a cow", then this is a painting of cow to her. Some customers ask me to explain what my intentions toward art works. I can tell easily more technical stuff how I made this painting or how I created these sculptures, but it is very difficult for me to explain about my "feelings" that I might put into works. Because I don't even understand myself what I'm thinking making these art works. I would like to use a word "vibes" than "my thoughts" to maybe express what my intentions are. I always look for some good vibes that make me feel like want to look at it over and over again.
I should work on my writing skill though. The original PEAR is already sold ( thanks, Leo!)

36 x 48 inches
This is one of the largest paintings I've ever worked on. I wish I could challenge much larger size though. As I wrote before, it is important to find good vibes and rhythm when I work on a painting. Colors and unique figures bring you some kind of movement. Try all of things like brush strokes, drip watery paint, scratch the surface, working on details like stripes... Erasing a part that I liked need a little courage, but absolutely necessary sometimes. If hours of work didn't work out for the painting, they have to go. The sketch I made before painting didn't work out, have to restart again. Frustrating sometimes. Well, this is not special thing at all. Most of the painters go through this tough journey to make something nice. I love this painting. Hope you do too.

Approximately 14 x 4 x 4 inches / 9 oz
I sometimes want to make something funny, so that I can get touch with people who are not so into contemporary art. I believe pop art is for everyone. I started this series 5 years ago - the first one I made was a light sketch that a wrestler holding his cat. I found it interesting, so made 2nd and third paintings. Those are sold (thanks to Camile and David!), then I was like "maybe there are people who might like this kind of art work for their home" so decided to continue this series. The 7th edition is art objects not a painting. This series is about a man who is very strong as a wrestler and has a very sweet heart to his cat even though this cat behaves like love and hate to him. There are official collectors for this series, and hope they like these too.
OK, That is it for this month.
