During his year in school.The idea of Art challenges were pretty addictive to him.Initially intimidated by them he tried few in school and got hooked on it like a drug. ” There is some thing about a challenge that make it addictive, you have short burst of energy towards some thing and have to produce it in time to fit a larger idea, its just an awesome feeling to me ” .
His plan for this residence is to simulate such a scenario.One challenge in school that got passed him was a Star wars Challenge, were in artist were invited to create different iterations of scenes and props for the famous franchise.This was his long time obsession, but unfortunately couldn’t keep up during school.But this time he’s back with focus to finally and hopefully succeed in finishing it.
