Sun is all bitter
Shoyo Jahana

Jahana draws and creates artworks by using his fingernails. Jahana believes that the act of using his fingernails, the personal touch of his body, gives his work life. Jahana also works with crayons because it is a primitive and familiar medium. Jahana writes characters on the wood panel with the crayon, these characters represents his daily life. They represent the making of anger, sadness, hatred, and etc. Jahana paints with a jet-black crayon then scratchs into it with his fingernails. The scratch picture is then decorated with lame, fold foil, and other materials. This act is like the prayer. Nobody will see the character concealed in the ground of the work. However, it exists and will surely transmit to others in some shape or form.
