I became interested in art history after I took several Anthropology courses while in college in the United States. I have been interested in art for a long time, but previously I wasn’t really interested in art history. After taking several Anthropology courses, I found that one piece of artwork can tell many things such as: political situations, history, economics, ecology, the culture of an artist and the time and place that the artwork was made.

Particularly in Anthropology courses, I have seen many artworks that deal with segregated people and works of segregated people. These works of art are one way to inform people about their situations. Therefore, art history and what an art piece conveys can be used to interpret life and help others to understand the real meaning of the work, and I want to be a medium for this process.
