Is there any of your artwork related to a moment that marked a significant change in your life?


Do you think art could be an instrument in the defense and in the claims of LGBTQ rights?

Yes, but it can not be reduced only to express bright colors and physical pleasure, we should rather focus our attention on social discrimination and equality from various points of view.


Can you share with us any story behind your art project?

I was born in a comic shop. I grew up reading comics and watching Japanese animation during elementary school. My father used his comic techniques to guide me on how to observe, how to paint, how the human body looks, how to look at it, how to understanding the stories in cartoons and movies, this journey deeply affects my future desire for aesthetics.
