Artist Biography

Creative Concept:

Art sometimes survives thousands of years. Some things are made most beautiful when they are made, some gradually decay, and others become beautiful as time goes by.
Some people will be born all the time, repaired by later generations. Gold has a nature and image that it is permanent. Even if the original shape is lost, it will be reborn by applying gold on it. Even if money gets stripped after ages, another beauty appears again.
