Statement of THE PEOPLE COME FIRST series (2022)

Acrylics on canvas. 47 x 47 inch. / 120 x 120 cm

"For me, people come first," said Alice Neel, and I subscribe her words as a fire to be passed on. These paintings of barely unknown sitters highlight the soul of the common people. A graphic novel background meets the renaissance portrait with the aim to give importance to the domestic, the everyday life. 

I focus on the dignity of the human being. Under the paintings underlays a commitment to civil rights.
