My ceramic art is directly influenced by my study of Buddhist philosophies and my interest in the visual cultures of the East mixed with Western street art themes. The deeper I go, the teachings of the Dharma are filtered through my mind and reinterpreted in the forms and characters I create.
This is expressed through an intuitive, visceral handling of clay as well as the graffiti tags I add to my work. Using cute teddy bears and street art elements also act as a way to lighten the heavy subject matter I present.
By using traditional and contemporary techniques and philosophies, I can create unexpected combinations of the old and new mixed with the East and West.
