My name is Machyar Kumbang and I am A NEW MASTER. Anyone who has seen me has seen the Old Masters. The techniques and principles I use are not solely my own; rather, they are the techniques and principles of the Old Masters. Given by their Creator through them, and now they live on through me. I and the Old Masters are one, and I am in the Old Masters and they are in me. Even though they are greater and more accomplished artists than I am. I believe this is so based on the evidence of my creations. The tradition of the Old Masters represents the pursuit of humans’ intellectual ability through attainment and workmanship. ~ Peace and Love,
