  • “From a young age I trained myself to draw quickly. There is a training protocol that I use: draw a person in 10 minutes. I do not know how many thousands of paintings I drew using this training method. What I felt after was that there is no way our body can catch up with the loss of time, but human beings have memories. I think memory is the origin of human creativity. It is the image in the head. I think it is real and is reflecting the truth. So, all the paintings I draw are realistic paintings.”
