I am mainly interested in the dynamics of man-environment interaction and the balance of power between the individual and the mass. In my paintings I create empty landscapes, where I immerse figures hanging, clumsy, extravagant, often veiled with subtle irony. Irony sometimes casts a veil of absurdity on a situation, giving it a different perspective. My absurd and bizarre stories, are often crowded with grotesque and eccentric characters, just like in everyday life. My works describe situations at the boundary between real, imaginary and paradoxical, every single element is aimed at expressing a sense of temporariness and loss.
My palette consists of three colors: black, white and blue. I love the essence of black and white and the eternal elegance of blue.
