Every piece of artwork that I create has a story to tell, or a message to convey. I employ a large variety of styles in my work. I also enjoy mixing different styles in combination with diverse techniques in order to achieve various results. When I design a piece of work, my main goal is to influence the way people see and think about it. I invite the viewers not only to explore my work, but also to assign their own meaning to it. My artwork is open to interpretation, and that is one of the most important thing about it. It will not necessarily tell you what it is about! You have to experience the artwork for yourself, and understand it in your own way. In other words, you must go inside the artwork and see where it takes you. All you need to do is to keep an open, inquiring mind and a big imagination.
My art is like visual, tangible music. It is music that you could actually hold in your hands.
My artwork is also a language of colors. The colors and designs form melodies and harmonies that resound off the canvas/support and reverberate in the heart and mind of the viewers. My art reflects what I see in the world. In my opinion, art is a feeling, an expression that can easily transform you. I like to capture the beauty in people, objects and places. Diverse media that I use allow me to express different ideas.
