My art is painting and the drawn image. I experiment with various ways of making art, but I have always known that it is painting and drawing that allow me to express myself as I want. Over the years, I have studied mainly the paintings of Picasso and Salvador Dali--these two names were always in my head plus their imagery.
These references allowed me to experience the age I live in with a certain mindset--from watching cartoons to everyday experiences in my life-- with a certain mindset that helps me develop a style of painting. I continuously work adding elements of street art (graffiti) with the human figure merged with geometric, and biomorphic abstract shapes.
The main subject of my paintings is the human figure, which I depict through abstract shapes and the geometry that signals technology, and the artificial construct of much of the world around us. With that kind of imagery, I try to depict the contemporary soul and the feeling of being human in such a moment.
