"I love design, minimalism and modernism.
My childhood was an interesting balance of lonelyness and mad chaotic fantasies, so I love to experiment with illustration techniques, patterns, abstract design, colours and graphic. I paint my childwood feelings, trying to walk the line between kitsch, minimalism, and pure feelings.
I draw disturbing images, made with affection, cuddles and shards of broken glass.

Ever since I was a teenager I have been fas­ci­nated by the ephemeral nature of the Nature. What starts out as vision soon becomes debased into a tragedy of greed, leav­ing only a sense of deca­dence and the prospect of a new under­stand­ing.
With influ­ences as diverse as Aubrey Beard­s­ley, computer graphic, Lib­erty and Deco, new com­bi­na­tions are crafted from both explicit and implicit lay­ers." Read Less
