Statement

 

As an artist, my aim is to bring into light the untold truth behind forms, shadows and ideas. This exploration is done through three bodies of work:  HUMAN SHADOWS, POPULISM and ARCHITECTURAL VIEWS.

In an age were everything is in the public domain (social networks etc) and everyone believes they have the right to respect, individuality and privacy, when at the same time all is watched and heard, how do you decode a persons perception of reality?

How can you portray the endless effort of humanity to acknowledge fear, define themselves and deal with the emotions that ensue? How does the struggle of existence coincide with political manipulation and self-awareness?

What’s the language of Architectural elements under the above perspective, expressing peoples personal stories and emotions?

The tools for this creative journey/process are photography, drawing/manipulation using digital software.
