"I Was Like You, You Will Become Like Me" is a sequence of painted skeletons on large scaled canvas. It invites the spectator to be involved with its title and be a part of its existence.

These works are in homage to the victims of 3rd, 4th, 5th... world wars--if the world exists until then.

The history of humanity repeats itself. There are wars, civil wars, genocides... and for what reason?

Power. You who have power look at me and call my name “I Was Like You, You Will Become Like Me.” Is there anyone who can cut the chain of the history and stop all the wars?

Remember my name for the times to come, if time exists. “I Was Like You, You Will Become Like Me."
