I live in a world that I shape at my liking. I do this through virtual, pictorial, and sculptural movements, transferring my experiences and photographing reality through my mind’s filters. I have refined this process through years of research and experimentation.
Painting for me is my first love. An important, pure love. Creating a painting, starting from the spasmodic research of a concept with which I want to transmit my message--this is the foundation of painting for me. The sculpture is my lover, my artistic betrayal to the painting--that voluptuous and sensual lover that inspires different emotions which strike prohibited chords.
