About the artist:

I have been suffering from a mental illness since 2015, and I am still fighting illness. About four years ago, I started painting by accident. I had no knowledge or experience in painting. I drew as I was willing.

Gradually, the feelings in me appeared into the color and shape of the picture. I am in the dark. In that darkness, I seek light, scratch my feet, and seek help. In the last four years, I have had a period of time when I couldn't painting again and again due to poor physical condition.

I have experienced countless suicidal ideations. Still, I'm still painting. I am living "life" while coexisting with illness. I believe that one day I will be able to truly appreciate painting, sick, and everything. That's all I want to tell you.
