I've studied International Relations and Diplomacy, but i'm actually interested in economy and social studies. There is something in art that somehow explains a lot that's happening in the world right now, and i seek to uncover it. Feel free to contact me at

Chiu Ya-Tsai was a Taiwanese contemporary artist known for painting portraits, where he’s not so much concerned with the facial expressions of his models, but rather with their minds.
