Picture; It is a way of expressing all feelings such as emotionality, humor, pain, crying while laughing, enthusiasm, excitement, vitality, tragedy, with the universality of colors. Using contrasting colors together while painting, I feel like I am making a different utopia, and the emotions and beings in that utopia scream with the universality of colors, not the real one. The biggest feeling I want to give in my paintings; catching a smile even in the saddest picture.
