> Since then I always try to do something in the art.....
> My paintings are very bad but colourful. I like colours very much...........
> The mouth gonna be the theme for my first solo exhibition. I never show my work before to the public .
> Why mouth?
> Because the mouth is the centre of many of the fundamental components of human activity. It is
consumption, speech, breath, romance; it is communication, interaction, giving pleasure, almost a
door to the soul.
> And I love to communicate, the romance, interaction between people in a positive way..
> And because I am a comedian, for me the venue Marie Lloyd Bar is perfect...
> The world need to get to know this fresh painter, comedian and also future singer.
> I like to share with people.....
