Artist statement

I produce a work mainly based on three-dimensional paper sculpture and stencil style painting that incorporate words.
The theme of my expression is to throw queries directly as a visual message to human behavior and mind what we ignore though we should face in our daily life.
It is a bit ironic but important element in my work to provoke connecting with something beyond words by the words.
I believe that words are human beings themselves. Words have the power and the possibility to become better human and to find better life.
