S t a t e m e n t
I explore the relationship between spirituality and artistic expression.
During meditative states, I transfer the true nature of the inner unconscious behind the mental and
emotional phenomena on the art works.
In particular, I focus in capturing the expressions of the essential soul.
I believe that art expression (especially abstract expression) is influenced by the state of the creator’s spirit.
The beautiful mixed colours, shapes and vibration of painting affect people’s mind positively.
My aim is to uplift people’s mind and freedom from negativism or own frame of mind trough art.
I believe what you feel from Art is the truth to you.
Artist is just transformer from the unseen world to the painting.
