Pop-art Calligraphy DIANA

Basically I am an abstract painter in the sense that I could not imagine how the final form of the painting that I created. I do the painting in a traditional way or using a computer as well with a digital painting method.

I make abstract paintings from scratches of calligraphic marks or graffiti shapes at random which I used to do as a way to bypass the time when I was caught in a high emotional tension. I do not exactly make any plan to my paintings but mostly done with experimental result. Depending on the mood that occurs when the painting is created, at last I have to decide whether to let it as supposed to be or make a combination or mixed with other more realistic subject such as shape of a face, a figure or a building architecture in order to produce a form of creative drawing or painting.

I wish a beauty exists in my paintings which can make emotional bond between the viewers and the paintings so that they will continually keep watching my paintings.
