“My works have a lot of detail and that can be an obstacle. For example, in God Of Seigfred Hall, I had a series of illustrations with many details, textures, and patterns. I couldn’t paint all those details on the massive walls with uneven surfaces in a short amount of time, so I did research and found out that wheat pasting could be a solution. I could quickly draw my illustrations with full details in a small size through wheat pasting, scale them with a computer, print them in a large size by blueprint machines, and paste them on the wall.”
