I created a series of painting that represents my memories. Each painting uses an autobiographical image of myself and the people whom I shared my innocent days with.

The four “4×4” paintings are well executed into a diamond shape and my two “4×6” paintings where I put multiple subject. In my installation I really find this project very close to my heart because it is a diary of my exceptional and deeply amazing experiences as a child.

As we grow older,we tend to forget moments we thought are insignificant. We might as well erase some relevant happenings from our minds. This study seeks to address to issues that we fear of about growing up and forgetting the kids that we were in the past. This is an expression of what life had been going in this journey of mine. It is a portrayal of some of the animated days of my childhood days when I was so young ang innocent.
