Statement

 

Statement


My works are based on what is in front of me and inside of me. I exploit these through paintings, sculptures, photography, videos and music compositions to dig deep within inside myself. 
It help me to see beyond the surface of what happens around me, opening a more complex world of sensations, colors and emotions.
