With homogenous communities that are reluctant to embrace the unknown but value traditions. With diverse communities that embrace change but hope to cha...

While Donald Trump is legally the President Elect, we can not ignore the growing and intensifying racist incidents happening across the country. It is our duty as Americans to give voice to our beliefs, to fight for our rights. It is one of the founding principles of the UsofA. #election2016 #donaldtrump #protest #lovetrumpshate (at Trump Tower New York)

I of course personally enjoy artworks, but I would rather love something universal for my own works rather than pursuing the uniqueness. Classic art like old paintings of portraits and landscapes may sound closer to me.” From Beyond the Land’s End, by Yumiko Kinoshita.
