ARTIST’S   STATEMENT
 
Kampungs, paddy fields and fishing villages are my favour subject matters.
These valuable and ancient scenery will be disappeared slowly because of
the society and city development. I would like to let people have a nice and
forever memory so I paint down all of these historical scenery.
