Honest, humble but ambitious filmmaker/ photographer , raised in Asian culture, rediscovered himself and ‘essence’ of Asianness in European culture. By understanding these two sides of things; left and right, black and white, beauty and ugly; and things in between - he aims to create artistic products through the humble-respectful-yet-critical eyes, with poetic quality and transcendental beauty, which rejects the notion of coolness or arts-as-higher-form-of-expression;

Artists are human,


“Because I am human”






I believe artists must have manifesto;
and mine is currently in the state of making

artists must realize the privileged position we are in; to be able to present or twist the reality as we see fit,
thus artists must be true to the subject matter and bring one’s own artistic ego down to serve the subject matter

artists must be conscious about aesthetic decisions and all those should come from constructive, critical point of view, and not from trends nor ‘coolness’
