IMAGE: It is commonly said that some people stand at the crossroads in their lives, but that is not accurate. In truth, everyone is always standing at a fork in the path in their life. Should they go this way or that way? They have to choose one way or the other. They lose the way.

IMAGE: Everyone seems to think that life is cumulative. On the contrary, I think it should be unloaded. The more wealth and knowledge one accumulates, the more freedom one loses. If you stick to the accumulation of the past, you will be buried in the sediment before you know it and you will not be able to move. To challenge life and truly live, you must be reborn moment by moment and open your destiny. To do so, you must have nothing and be unconditional in mind and body. The more you throw away, the thicker and purer your life becomes.

IMAGE: For me, art is life itself. I would like to emphasize that art is the way of life that lives the most intensely as a human being, unconditionally exuding life and exploding. "Art is (an) explosion"...but what I call (an) "explosion"...doesn't make a sound. Things don't fly away. Open your whole body and soul to the universe unconditionally. That's the "explosion". Originally, life should continue to explode moment by moment, gratuitously and aimlessly. It is the true way of life.
