Questioning existence, my work, revolves around light and death. It is a perpetual exploration of the human being and our perception, spirit, and understanding. It started as a search through the immaterial, finding the void and the answers to the questions that appear in between. The paintings are an endless journey of explaining what and why we are. The language of painting is as intuitive and concrete as life itself. The questions come to answers and the answers come to questions. As the exploration goes on, embracing space, science, and philosophy. My work intends to be a statement of pure emotion through an uncertain existence.
Since I was a child, I always had an urge to create. Making art is my biggest joy and I loved having the freedom to express myself without constraint. Being an artist is about constant learning and giving to others. Hearing people talk about the experience and feelings they had while looking at my pictures is my fulfillment. I embrace the fact that I have had the opportunity to develop my mind, spirit, and body and help others along the way. It is mainly the reason I chose to be an artist in the first place.
I usually work in a series of works, mostly paintings. Every painting has one or many stories behind it. My inspiration comes from exploring emotions and my objective is that the picture has a strong impact on the viewer. Between the painting and him. comes a translation and filter of him thoughts. The biggest influence is my hunger for understanding human beings.
