The International Beauty Industry Awards Best Hair Art / Avant-Garde2020-21 Finalist, 3rd place Alternative Hair INTERNATIONAL VISONARY AWARD Best Avant-Garde Finalist There are no limits to artistic expression.
As an artist, I strive to be “the deep sea”. There is no limit and no end. It’s refreshing but warm and full of unknown wonders. For the past two years, I have been creating works of art, dreaming of standing out among others in the time I have left on this Earth. I’m very proud of my profession as a hairdresser, so I focused on expressing my art through hairstyles, make-up and fashion.
I’m in charge of art direction and hair. It was June 2019 when I first started to create works of art with the help from exceptional make-up artists and photographers.
“Design with Hair”
It’s not normal. The limits of the material are determined by physical factors such as gravity. Therefore, I face a number of technical difficulties when trying to bring my imagination to life using a head of hair. However, when the work is finally completed, it’s beyond fantastic, beyond surreal.
I want the art I create to be emotional, not just beautiful. It doesn’t matter if it evokes joy, awe, or wonder. When confronting “it”, people’s hearts should not be like a lake without waves, but calm like that of a source of life, and sometimes an ocean that swallows everything and turns it into algae.
Art can be unconditionally beautiful. But on the other hand, when you take a step forward, there is a reality of the outside world.
Sometimes you will face a reality that makes you want to cover your eyes. Imagine the true beauty at times like these and feel the rays of light that I create.
My creations reflect me and they speak in the language of art.
