The most difficult and admirable thing to do is to balance all your creative energy into real life.
If I don't draw, it's hard for me to stay in one place. My mind is always looking for something to do. If I was only allowed to draw with one thing, it would be a pencil. Priceless material that costs nothing.
The artist is as good as his point of view. In the age of social media, it's easy to get lost in the material overload and vision of others. Always concentrate on your work, keep creating, and your own feelings will naturally develop.
Last year, I was invited to star in a Korean TV series, and I went to Seoul for three months. This coincided with stagnation in my work. The incredible opportunity to leave the studio for a while, feel like an actor and invest my energy in other activities beckoned me. But soon I found myself painting in a hotel room. All my senses were overwhelmed by the surrounding architecture, fashion, customs, local aesthetics. I wanted to fully immerse myself in this culture and learn about my own ancestry. It was this experience that made me realize how ambiguous my personal and cultural identity is between the two cultures. Therefore, my work began to take a more abstract, ambiguous direction.
