Theories say that our brains are built to fall in love and human beings, in our natural state, are programed to be in pair. This can be the reason why most of us, when it comes to love, we become uncontrollable. They also say that our heart is such a wild creature that’s why it is caged inside our ribs. I personally think that this is true because when we are in love, we tend to think that we can do anything and everything for the person we love. This is what “Untamed Heart Series” is all about. Its about that magical feeling of falling in love and how it affects the human behavior specially at those times when we realize that love is not all about happiness. That every relationship got their fair share of trials and that it is a hard work. Everyday, it is a decision that you make whether or not you will continue to love the same person you are with.
“Untamed Heart Series” is dedicated and was made to celebrate all those courageous hearts who’ve decided to continue on loving, all those brave hearts who choose to follow their passion.
At this day and age when all we hear are hateful news about bombing and terrorism, what we need are “Untamed Hearts” that are willing to give love, to remind us, that what this world need is one thing, and that is, LOVE.

“My artworks are inspired by powerful lessons I’ve learned from life. My paintings emphasize the value of life and incorporate elements like nature and animals to show that we are all connected. Layers of expressive brush strokes can be observed at each painting, necessary for certain emotions to show through. Together with this is my rich devotion to details that elevates the artwork’s aesthetics. The profound visual narrative and the techniques used aims to reveal the invisible within the visible.
Though I take into consideration the use of different techniques, I value more the feelings that I put into my works. I paint with my heart. For me, a painting is successful if it can make anyone who would look at it feel the emotion that it’s suppose to give. It is like delivering a clear message by touching the hearts of the viewers. ” – Hari Lualhati
