The silent and unnamed unhappines that comes from un expressed feelings from his childhood finds a path on white sheet of paper with the help of a pencil, and by the time passes, he finds himself got relaxed and got rid of his worries through drawing.


According to him, his paintings were just simple drawings - maybe, as  his primary teacher said; a few ridiculous shapes. But he was happy then. Everything had changed the day when he showed one of his drawings to a friend of his. World got a meaning for him because that friend admired his drawing and adviced him not to throw away any of those drawings. After 2-3 drawings,he started having his own archive.When he wanted to paint, without thinking about the concept or style, without caring the time and place, he just touched the white sheet and desires, unexpressed feelings, hopes, pain beginned to have shapes.


According to him, the beauty of his paintings is hidden in the times full of feelings that have effects on him and the others. No matter the drawings are simple or complicated.


Painting turned out to be the language of the things that he couldn't even dreamed of, he tried to draw his dreams but he became more and more enthusiastic  when he realized that he couldn't achieve this. His only will is to increase the number of his paintings from 200 to thousands, ten thousands and share them with the entire world.
