THE ART OF EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE
As an artist, my focus is on exploring and addressing the emotional disconnection in today's society. Through my work, I aim to draw attention to the often neglected value of our internal beauty and to encourage a more humanistic perspective. I believe that by reconnecting with our social consciousness and encouraging introspection and compassion, we can rediscover the beauty in our lives. My goal is to create a dialogue and a space for viewers to reflect on their own emotions, and to consider the emotions of others, as a way to foster understanding and empathy.
