About myself:

For me, being an artist is a multi-disciplined affair. In my latest series, I'm using popular posters, photographs, prints, paints and intriguing found-items juxtaposed in such a way that their familiar contexts are broken down and powerful new emotional associations come into being. I create these works using loose blend of overlapping elements. The elements say one thing ‘‘Individuality’’, yet placed together, the message is more complicated and less certain. Personal associations spontaneously arise in the viewer in an attempt to understand the whole and complete the story. These pieces are more like pictures of a state of mind, a distracted, half conscious state that causes jumble of unrelated things: scraps of memory, floating impressions, thoughts and feelings that float in a disorganized mix…I like exploring the relationship between mediums of now and then.
My aim is to make the viewer interpret and to become more involved in my imageries. For me, to be successful as an artist, the viewer needs to stand in front of my work and feel something.
To me, my art is about the process of discovery, the synthesis of my personal feelings, colour that inspires me and technique that I use : It's a piece of who I Am.
