"occhan" is a motif that represents 'people' activities.
The background of the work includes negative elements and things that originate from social problems, but we sublimate them and continue to transmit the brightness and fun that people can glimpse in the form of art.
I continue to transmit them as art.
I always embody what interests me, what is a loss for me and what exists to turn around the inherent negative feelings.
