"Being both a formally and a self
educated artist, I have always been interested in social/political
issues as the major forces that shape our life, and their effect
on the average person's struggle to survive and rise.
I had my first solo exhibition at the age of 13.
Inspired by Salvador Dali and the surrealist movement,
my artistic style of expression is surrealism
and symbolism. I am continuously experimenting with different
mediums but my favourite remains oil on canvas.
As an artist, I feel that it is my duty to reveal
the contrast between the harmonious relationship of the individual
with nature, as opposed to the man-made, often artificial connections
developed in the modern society.
While my artworks speak for themselves, I want to present these
issues from a different, unique angle hoping to stop viewers and
encourage them to think."
