Artist Statement

Impulsive, emotional and on edge!

Love nature and the beauty of the world.
Still an eclectic career, a beginning tinted with emotion.
Slightly dark palette which tends to enlighten, to be open to life. Intuitive composition while balance and power. The intuition of beauty!

Ideas constantly boiling the urgency to put everything on the canvas with a fluid gesture to lose nothing, without missing a detail. The urgency of life that goes too fast. The urgency of wonder, share, create and leave behind something timeless and magical.

The main theme of my creation is the human being. The human being in its duality; the beauty of the body with movements, the beauty of innocence versus its stupidity, its power of destruction, self-destruction.

I’m continuously in exploration to get more movement, towards a more coloristic approach for greater visual impact. A great influence of the graphics environment, an effectively brush stroke and a great need to touch the heart of people all depicting a high sensitivity.
