“In my work I am always researching the field of transcendental and transformative power of art. I base the research the concepts of colour, its shapes, rhythms and dynamics, followed by subjects that are close to me. I create to memorise the moment, to make an absurd idea reality and expand it. I like to play with dreams and subconsciousness, with feelings and impulse actions. My works  are a mixture of dreamy and violent, representing the two sides of myself with which I’m constantly making peace with. The urge to create something beautiful is every day too strong not to respond to it. I believe in art as a free form of expression, and I apply this philosophy also to my work.”
