WORK & LIFESTYLE
In my artistic practice, I try to defy the repeated announcement of ”the death of painting” in the background of new technology, by working intuitively and explosively with painting where mythological and contemporary motifs clash to create a new context. A fictional scene where the painting assumes the role of immortal warriors that demand the audience’s attention, love and respect.

“If you can't paint yourself, how in the hell you gonna paint somebody else.”

SERVICES

I Make Art

Paintings

My paintings are inspired by the notion of “evil” and juxtapositions created when placing mythological, historical, popcultural contexts together, like a colorful hurricane.

Posters

The works for this project are digital artificial monoliths with dimensions 1×2 meters and are composed of paintings, sketches, and digital photo prints on laser cut-out wooden and plexiglass panels.

Collaborations

If you want me to collaborate with your organization, contact me and go to collaborations to see what I’ve done.

Exhibitions

I love to show my art both in group exhibitions and solo, go to contact and let’s make something crazy together.

“I'm a painter, of the painters, for the painters.”
