My paintings are an endless journey to explain what we are and why we are here. The language of painting is as intuitive and concrete as life itself. My works delve into themes like space, science, and philosophy. Through exploring these uncertain topics, I intend to bring out raw emotions of fear and anxiety, as well as curiosity.
Since I was a child, I always had an urge to create. Making art was and still is my biggest joy because I love having the freedom to express myself without constraint. Being an artist is about constantly learning and exchanging your ideas with others.
My work constantly questions the meaning of existence by incorporating themes of life and death. It is a perpetual exploration of the human nature and our perceptions.
Hearing people talk about the experience and feelings they had while looking at my pictures is my biggest 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. Most of my inspirations comes from exploring my emotions. My goal is to create a strong impact on the viewer.
