A long, unique, and enchanting journey through the memories captured in children's books has deeply touched my soul. Like everyone else, my childhood holds the key to understanding the path I have taken so far. The things I draw evoke the vibrant emotions and pure enthusiasm I experienced during those innocent and fresh moments.

(...)

The encounters that seemed like miracles during our childhood, the endless games, the habitats of different creatures, the gardens, the unique plants, and the animals - all these wonderful experiences enriched our souls and expanded our perception of time. Similarly, the places where migrating animals find shelter during their journeys offer us a sense of exploration and discovery. As we grew older and started reading books, our world expanded even further, and we found new paths to explore.

Learning to read words enabled our memory to make connections based on visual cues. Children's picture books provide us with boundless freedom and I always feel like I'm rediscovering myself in their captivating world. Drawing, I believe, is one of the most beautiful, direct, and authentic ways to convey these experiences. Through drawing, I can access the transformative worlds of children and get carried away by the multi-dimensional melodies of children's picture books.

The exhibition will be open to the public from 10 am to 7 pm every day except for Sundays and Mondays, and will kick off with a special opening event on Saturday, June 10th at 6 pm.
