 Artist Manifesto 

 I declare with confidence that: 
 
Art does not have to be odd, shocking, gory, or controversial.
Artist does not have to be tragic, strange, depressed, or insane. 

Human beings are born with a gift called creativity, but the charlatans who call themselves an artist destroyed the beauty of creation. 
 
Art these days are controversial for the sake of being controversial.
Artists these days are weird for the sake of being weird. 
Artists these days are an artist for the sake of the title, "artist."

For centuries, art has been the mirror of our society. By exposing corruption and satirizing the establishments, the artists scratched the itches of people and called out the elephants in the room.
 
However, modern art became the exclusive property of the wealthy elites. The "artists" started to produce bizarre works that had made-up hollow meanings to justify their high price tags. If the audiences fail to comprehend, they become "an uneducated one who does not speak sophistication." These people, who call themselves an artist, are desperate to attract attention, get richer, and feel pride when they are called an artist.
 
I am against all this. I believe art must show artists' appreciation for beauty and show their genuine care for the message that they communicate. 
 
"The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place" said Picasso
 
I am not convinced with works that fabricate a tragic image and give a momentary shock to the audience. I aim to create art that can visualize one's experience and suggest a new perspective of looking at the world around us.
 
I believe art has to be immersible and relatable. Everything we see, hear, feel, and smell stimulate a part of our memories of emotion that we once felt but forgot. I aspire to explore the relationship between humans and a human, a thing, a minute in time, and a place.

A scene of the ocean can be painted on a canvas. It can be decor, an awfully expensive one or it can guide the audience along the path of emotion, to a place in their memory where they heard an enchanting sound of the waves.  

I aim to enable the sharing of these somewhat irrational or ambiguous feelings that we can't explain with words. I find this meaningful. 

Being hypersensitive to the surroundings and inspecting our world to accentuate the beauty that we were unaware of, this is my intention as an artist.
