In my current art work, I often convey tabooed human fetish and fantasy via fake naivety. As my works describe kinky inclination and its deficiency, the boundary between what is abnormal behaviour or longing, and the questioning of the social conditions that dictate what is proper and what is not. Under certain conditions, human yearning; including sexuality, violence, and dominance is nothing more than natural. Also I illustrate and satire catastrophic state regarding humiliation, sexual abuse and protagonist’s tragedy which are always happening in real. Sometimes we just can't help find ourselves imagining the difference between utopia and dystopia. For me, that is normally bizarre notion, daydream and disaster which are occurring in contemporary world with collective unconsciousness.
