I like to use easy ways to present my art works by using ordinary tools. Art is living all around us and I would like to bring it to share with every people in daily life. A ball pen definitely can be a good drawing tool.
Some people may have simple concept on ball pen which it is just a writing tool. It always being neglected and despised because of limited choice on colours and the price range, seems like the vulnerable groups in our society which are the source of inspiration for themes of my artworks.
Creating my own way by leading to a trend. Sharing and inspiring people to prove how to make thing impossible to possible, let ball pen art from minority to become majority and recognize a social identity. Try to take away its inherent image and re-invent with own individuality, producing a new vision, making contrasts with different frequencies, and finally construct “a new world outside the framework” for the ball pen and use such medium as a “counterweight” to eliminate high technology.
I am what I read, I am what I see.
"A clear boundless sky."
