ART CONCEPT

True art is a profound union between the soul and the intellect. My paintings aim to create images with a mysterious content of philosophical and romantic interpretations of personal experiences, as well as a prophetic critique of today’s social trends. The installations and photomontage reflect on the human condition in the universe, as well as on the ongoing struggle of the contemporary artist in a world of cultural chaos. Reflections on the spirit of the time, oracular, visionary, dystopian, satiric, warning cry, hidden perils of technology.
