" I believe everything on this Earth is unique, just as the snowflakes in a blizzard.
In my work, I tend to show the inner secrets, kept inside the every being I interpret, by moving it into paintings that symbolizes the echo of human or animal nature and motivation through time. Every line, every wrinkle, fold and crinkle is reflection of their previous experiences, events and life decisions. Every segments tells us a story, and by painting it through the smallest detail I am perceiving it and understanding it. "
