A painting that is hand-painted on a surface is unique and the only one of it's kind. It cannot be recreated or mass produced. It is not created by a robot or mechanical device. It's created by a human. It is an expression from the perception of an artist. Each paint stroke is unique. This is why I chose to become a painter. I wanted to continue this timeless tactile activity of expression especially when digitalization and mass production have become so dominant.
