Artist Statement My inspiration sources and aims remain always the same. I do see myself not so much as a traditional painter but more as a storyteller. Although I am –continuously - improving my techniques, I use them only as a writing medium.
Same way as a music composer I try to achieve a more universal language. With an alphabet of cultural memories, quotations of the Past, Signs of our Everyday Reality I try to build up mirrors in which someone could face The Human Condition. Reflections that might revive or invigorate - shared to be - knowledge and values of our society. For the viewer who does not desire this, it must always be an aesthetically satisfactory image.
After all,Art is nothing more than a gift, which enables us to see something beyond the Reason.
