“I am an artist of natural scenery,” he says. “Other artists may engage in philosophic thinking about political conflict, but I wanted to find a new path, a new expression reflecting the natural things.”

By Glenda Korporaal 

“I don’t like myself to be characterised,” he says. “Even the definition of artistic freedom limits­ your work. I just follow what is beautiful and what strikes me.”

He argues that his art has always been about landscape and man’s connection to the natural world, saying this can transcend any political differences between countries. “I am an artist of natural scenery,” he says. “Other artists may engage in philosophic thinking about political conflict, but I wanted to find a new path, a new expression reflecting the natural things.”

“The conflict between East and West is pretty deep but I think human beings should go back to nature to seek the true meaning of life,” he says. “I don’t think politics and ideology should be mixed up with art. Ideology changes all the time but the relationship between human beings (and) the beauty of nature never changes.
