My Art

Throughout my life I have painted man in various symbolic versions and always with similar meaning. That is, man and his life and soul, his feelings and suffering. These are questions that people have always considered, and I want to describe my view of existentialism in my art.

The nudity in my paintings is symbolic and there is nothing in common with worldly desires. I also associate hair and gender with worldly life. My characters have been deprived of these attributes, they have no gender and no hair. There are no material things in the spaces where my characters are located. I describe expressions and connections with human emotions in worlds that we normally cannot see. Worlds where there is sensitivity, love, empathy and boundless understanding.

My paintings are well connected with the music I listen to while painting. I meditative process my mind before I creating a new painting and need to find “the right song” which I listen to over and over again.

Additional expression builds through thick texture and large format. This is my painting style.
