In my painting process my goal is to combine figurative and abstract art. I’m also very fond of geometrical shapes and I like to throw them into the mix. I’m in a constant journey to search the right balance between these two approaches to painting.

I often use photographs as the basis for my works but I try to eliminate unnecessary details so that the final work consists only of the most important information needed. For me the most important thing in art is that the painting gives visual pleasure and only after that I’m looking for what it is possibly trying to say or what it represents.
