Statement

 

 

As an artist I want to bring the digital art up to the level of fine art. My main subjects are ARCHITECTURAL VIEWS, HUMAN SHADOWS and POPULISM.

Through those body of work I study the different perspective of architecture, discovering an untold truth, portrait the struggle of the human souls to define, curse, free it self from it self and explore the concept of populism in relation to our fears of identity.

The foundations of my digital palette are existing colors and shapes which go through a transformation process to reveal a hidden schema with a new identity and perspective. 

Each artwork became an individual piece but also part of a project. They are accompanied by a small text which connects all the pieces under the theme. Like a theatrical play with its characters.
