STATEMENT

The root of my work is the history of art that I have had access to, I believe that all the images that one sees impact the canvas but I have looked with special interest at the archaic art, the Romanesque, the Renaissance and the twentieth century. Within this I have been especially interested in expressionism, informalism, cartoons and graphic novels.

 

My works respond, on one hand, to the intention of portraying the social world that surrounds me and in which I feel reflected, in an effort to make it more bearable. I believe that this intimate exercise can also serve the observer, since it is part of the society as well. On the other side, I would like to make the viewer aware that the human spectrum in which it can be reflected is much wider than he imagines. We all are the ones who suffer, too.

 

The paintings and drawings that I present are, at the same time, political and homage. They portray a reality that they would rather not have to reflect, but cannot help to be fascinated by.
