J.R.R. Tolkien

Look how corky I am

"Painting is just another way of keeping a diary"

- Pablo Picasso

As with the Internet, you can never be absolutely sure whether Picasso has said these exact words, nevertheless they remain pertinent and true. My diary is a string of patched drawings and attempted paitings I am currently creating in Paris. It is also interlaced with my reflections, thoughts and emotions I'm experiencing throughout the process. I am by no means an artist. This is the 5th and final year of my engineering formation. But it's quite nice to evade Dirac's bra-kets along with Schrodinger's indecisive cat in order to escape to a world of liberties guided only by sense and the tip of a brush.

"I don't paint dreams or nightmares, I paint my own reality."

- Frida Kahlo

Three months since I've been living in Paris and I found inspiration in every nook and corner in this crowded, restless city. The tempo of life here is of a different order of magnitude, that which I have never seen elsewhere. By simple extension, my daily life grew to be more hectic. Hence, a chaos is brewing, that which I would like to channel, externalize, and shapeshift into concrete imageries. Or at least attempt to.

"I dream my painting and I paint my dream."

- Vincent van Gogh

I hope to paint those dreams in color and may words carry out the thoughts that fails to come forth via my brush.
