Love is an incredibly powerful word. Love is the most spectacular, indescribable, deep euphoric feeling for someone. Love is always love.

The I Hate People collection is a strong and rude form of art for criticizing people that care more about appearance than the substance of life. Our world has become obsessed with appearance, with image, with persona. Today it’s more important to have a good-looking surface than to have much in the way of integrity and internal depth. This argument is expressed through I Hate People, a graphic work made with a fake Chanel n. 5 perfume bottle and a hate statement produced with a different media.
