Artist's Statement

I am in love with color and in love with the cities I grew up in. As a teenager I was inspired to pursue a career as an artist. When I was about 15 I made my first realistic paintings. City life, the surrounding atmosphere and social structure have made a great impact on me.My works are pure abstract and have a great touch of impressionism. My paintings describe the story of nature and communicates in a mysterious way. My main focus is to bring to the canvas the expressive colors and harmonies of materials. Each stroke and drip, lines and color layers reflect my personal life within nature, society, my thoughts and feelings. My natural tendency was toward color and abstraction. My works also convey an insight into life and a spiritual attachment. I have been living in New York for over ten years, and have earned a significant reputation as a painter.
