In addition to clippings from magazines and newspapers, his work consists of everything that interests him from exhibition tickets, parts of bird and plant illustrations, medicine instructions, images of old paintings, etc. There is a place where a complete cut is pasted to one page, and there is another place where a number of small cuts are pasted. You can see a glimpse of the uniqueness of his work from the combination of particular parts that he chooses to paste.



    Since he began drawing at the age of 19, he has been continued to draw his own worldview. Among the delicate paintings created by his unique technique, there is an iron ore frog listening to the radio, a mechanical watch bug, and even a camera with its own original functions, etc. The artist is developing various stories in each picture.
