My Intention

To Empower and Be Empowered

Yes, it is still the same goal, but instead of just empowering and be empowered through Creative Arts, I included Healthy Lifestyle, Diverse Insights, and Minimalist Living, on the list. As a contemporary artist, I believe that healthy living, diverse insights, creative arts, and minimalist living are essential to a fulfilling life, and their relationships with art are multifaceted.

Healthy Lifestyle

Health is my first priority now. I was hospitalized for a month during August - September 2022, because some viruses attacked my brain stem, and my infusion had to be replaced to the neck (CVC) because the meds should be inserted through the central vein. Since then, I put my health as my first priority above everything else. I've lost 24.5kg by end of March 2023, stabilized my uric acid, cholesterol, and glucose level to normal range, have a good exercise and eating routine. After all, healthy lifestyle is crucial in providing the necessary physical and mental energy for creative expression. By adopting a healthy lifestyle, one can achieve a state of balance and focus, allowing for a more profound connection with one's artistic self. In turn, art can promote healthy living by inspiring individuals to engage in mindful practices as well. Art is well known as the best media to heal one self and to channel one's emotional state.

Diverse Insights

Diverse insights are equally important in art, as they offer a wider range of perspectives and ideas, creating a more nuanced and multifaceted artistic experience. The incorporation of diverse cultures, traditions, and worldviews into art can provide a space for meaningful cross-cultural dialogue, fostering empathy, and promoting social change. Through diverse insights, art can become a powerful tool for social activism and cultural representation.

Creative Arts

Creative arts has always become the one of the cores of my life. Just like healthy lifestyle and diverse insights, to me, creative arts are also integral to a fulfilling life, as they offer a platform for self-expression and exploration. Whether through 3D painting, sculpting, jewelry making, digital imaging, fashion styling, or any other medium, art can enable individuals to communicate their innermost thoughts and emotions, making the intangible tangible. Additionally, the creative process of creating the art and presenting the artworks/ wearing it, can serve as a therapeutic outlet, allowing individuals to process and cope with life's challenges, to preserve life memories, and to express emotions or self actualization.

Minimalist Living

Minimalist living is a lifestyle that I've been applying into my life since more than 5 years ago. to me, a minimalist lifestyle is vital to promoting a sense of simplicity and clarity in one's artistic practice. By adopting a minimalist mindset, I can focus on the essential elements of my work, avoiding the clutter and distraction that can hinder my creative expression. Additionally, minimalist living does promote environmental sustainability, reducing the overall ecological impact of art production and consumption. That's why at VILICI Jewelry, we offer free repair service* to most of our products, because we believe in the value of sustainability.

In conclusion, as a contemporary artist, I believe that healthy living, diverse insights, creative arts, and minimalist living are integral components of a fulfilling life, with significant implications for art. Through their interrelatedness, these elements can inspire us to engage in more meaningful and purposeful artistic practices, promoting personal growth, social change, and environmental sustainability in the long term.

And that's exactly how I want my art and my life to empower and be empowered.

H ello. You are on my Now page and these are the things that I'm currently focusing on: - Healthy, balanced, and mindful living is my first priority now. - I was hospitalized for a month from August - September 2022. Some viruses attacked a part of my brain and brain stem which causes imbalances on my motoric gravity, plus I had a gout attack for the first time in my life. My infusion had to be sewn on my neck cause the meds need to be inserted through the central vein for three weeks straight. I promised myself to never be that sick ever again, and determined to change my whole lifestyle, including to prioritize myself, my health, and my peace first. Since then, I have lost 22kgs, have been maintaining my uric acid level below 5.5, manage my cholesterol level down to 146, maintain my normal fast glucose level at 85, and been eating, exercising, and living healthier, plus doing so many changes in life including the way I sleep and raising my water intake level. - Creating intentio

Health: Gout, Purine & Uric Acid

I am at that age, where having regular blood test is normal, especially on uric acid and cholesterol (Yes, I'm old lol). On this post, I will write about Gout and Uric Acid only, and will talk about Cholesterol on next post. After 5 months since my first Gout attack, reading lots and lots of medical journals and health books, doing so many trials and errors, I can safely say, I now have figure out how to maintain it below 5.5 while still consuming enough protein to support my strength training. I've taken note of my daily food for months and measure my uric acid level in weekly basis to check the reaction I get from each food that I eat (everyone has different reaction towards food), and maintained my uric acid below 5.5 since then. Most labs and doctors actually take 6 as the normal uric acid level for female and 7 for male, but according to some health book that I read, below 5.5 is the best either for male and female. (*1) PLEASE NOTE Here, I will share what I have found an

What If Word Is Not The Real Language ?

What if word is not the real language? And what if the basic importance of communication is neither about who is the sender or how it was being sent? Aside from love which is hard to be measured, music and art are two of the few fields and disciplines in life that have proven those two questions as very relatable and argumentative. With music, we have seen many cross boundaries musicians who don't understand each others' (word-y) languages, collaborated and jammed together nicely. Classical, Jazz, and Swing are among few genres that put forward on those wordless language heavily, according to their own principles on each of their own disciplines. We can even enjoy music without really understand the lyrics or even without lyrics at all. With art, we've seen how the works of artists who have passed away hundred years ago still resound heavily to us now. Even without really knowing about the background of the artists or their works, we're still able to enjoy them and dist
