When I look at the world around me, I see things to draw, people and objects I come across in my daily life. Humor and lines is what I use to make my drawings. I create lines with ink, paint or other unexpected media: electrical or metallic wire, pigment on snow, shadows. Medium introduces a conceptual dimension to the drawing.
I observe the society I live in and record it with drawings. I transform my observations and develop them using mixed media. The final works are large drawings on canvas, projected animations or small sculptures.
