The main subject matter of my art is celebrities of all times in literature, films, music and all other artistic genres. My main questions is whether they are real artists or mere celebrities. The public ceaselessly idolize these figures by uncritically accepting their staged images. Through my work, I tried to express the difference between their signature images and their real-selves. The vibrant color scheme and contrast in my paintings demonstrate their various emotional temperature for devotional commitment to art. It presents their realization of such emotions as delightfulness and happiness yet ironically reveals the opposite such as sorrow and sadness acquired through the attitude of self-sacrifice hidden at the same time. At last, my works brings a rhythmical sense by using a residual image effect expressing the powerful energy and such a feeling forces viewers to fully understand how great and powerful these artists are at a single glance.
