Artist's Statement

I’ve always been attracted to painting. I started oil painting when I was around 7 years old using knife techniques. Later on I developed many interests in media such as video, sound installation and music. My art is a mix between minimalism and expressionism: balancing concepts of simplicity, continuity and discontinuity of our world, the confrontation between time and the fear of time, the conceptual and the relational. A game between abstract and figurative, I constantly seek to express an emotional meditation.

Always very curious, I needed to simultaneously experience many things and see them closer. Everything I do is with passion, becoming more and more emotionally involved in my work, charged by our environment, by love, by life and by death.
