Artist’s statement

My main theme is that a human has a finite time before death and that this time should be thoroughly fulfilled emotionally, physically and spiritually. My body of work promotes a hedonistic lifestyle: what feels good is good. Just live life in the now and make the most of it. I chose this theme after realising that many people, including those close to me, waste entire lifetimes in an office, sacrificing relationships and personal reflective time in the name of material wealth. I have communicated this in an attention-grabbing magazine format for its civilised audience.
