Running Painting

This project is to make constant painting process as physical act every day no matter what happens. I have performed this project for 2 years. I named the project ‘Running Painting’ since the way of working is similar to a marathon. The goal is 'No. 50,000’ which was the number of paintings Picasso did in his whole life. Through constant drawing, I want to make myself perfect-combustion. When I finish this project, I will retire as a painter and live a new life.
