    Pre-Lot Text

    I'm in love with the emotion combined by the broad sky, clear landscapes... A city becomes an element of the nature... In my landscape paintings, I'm trying to represent the changes of urban life causes to nature, while I don't want it to be merely a reflection of a city itself, but to put it into the nature, and to put emotions into my paintings.
