His paintings, drawn with crayons, have a sense of humor, but they also have a disturbing atmosphere. What is drawn is doubts about the "common sense" shared by society. Common sense is a system that stabilizes groups and societies, but by keeping a certain distance from it, people can take the initiative in their own lives. talk to. This theme emerged from the altered consciousness experienced by the artist, and believes that the world is colorless and transparent, and that common sense is nothing more than a replaceable frame that human beings give meaning to by chance. This escape from common sense can be seen in the coloring that is not found in painting theory. In recent years, he has expanded his range of expression to include not only crayons but also stencils and digital collage works.
