PERCEPTION OF ART
Indeed, Art is life. It is the life-vein connecting all human beings and societies. I believe that an Artist is someone who feels the very first rays of light on his/her forehead and is able to see what others cannot.

Art is love; it is a search for beauty. It is peace. The purpose of Art is to discover and also be aware of ugliness. It is to perceive the poetic life.

The connection with the relating branches, architecture and other links, the target always is widen the view that continue to infinitive. Thee is no end of art and will never finish; there is only feelings that is the main point to be creative for further improvements. Unless you have the good feelings, you can never create perfect art works. To create the best art works, you have to have the love in your heart.

I find it very rewarding to be an Artist and to contribute to the education of students as an Art Instructor.
