The Art I do exists to inspire, bore and awake. It puts the viewer on its own journey, invites him to reflect and develop new views on life. Seeding an inner momentum for a movement beyond habits and borders.
Art is an experiment of communication, a combination of direction and impact. It starts deep down from inside, as an inner seed waiting for the right moment to come to surface. It is connected with time and space and often the lines reflect our movements towards growth and happiness in our curriculum of facing our contemporary life time and death. Art should reach as far and near as possible, build bridges between people and their hearts and invite to enjoy the beauty and mystery of this world, which in its diversity is mostly hard to cope with.
