Philosophy on Work

One of the main things which every man searches in his life is his own identity. I don know if it’s accidental or fate, like some people, like to say, but self-expressing became my way of living. Everything is always evolving. Each work shows a different side of me and only the manner of thinking is my guide. For me, there is no limit for the way to express myself and that is why I travel all the time somewhere in the river of imagination...I search in the intimate and poetic corners of my mind. I get inspired by the small, ordinary things in life. Through my art, I seal a moment in eternity. So my soul rests in the connection between nature and object. My way of showing things is with classical influence and a lot of expressive motion. The main goal is seeing the truth of life which we breed every day but forget from time to time…
