In my teenage years, I experienced a daily form of violence that was committed through texts called ‘success in society’ which imprisoned people’s happiness in a rigid framework. This violence stripped us of clear standard of happiness and gave us anxiety about the future. Data collection in a modern society filled with provocative images pushed us into an image excessive situation and clouded our judgment. Such a situation led me into an absence of emotions and spirituality that refused to be defined.

The only way for me to lead a normal daily life was to express my inner sources of anxiety through the act of drawing. The absence of definite concepts and logical spirituality led me to a formative methodology and scribbling as a form of entertainment, allowing me to escape from the undefined source of anxiety.
