Style: Abstract Expressionism. Why?
Because of emotions. It’s all in this particular moment. All your life. It’s like music improvisation. You need to say explain all life in one moment, in one phrase, in one white square…
Emotion is relationship with others. My art is relationship with others too.
I like competition, I like to make something new every day, on the end I like to win. I like to win every day. For me to finish my canvas is like finish line for runner or reaching the peak for mountain climber, I will die for this.
I love paint and I love colors, and I love white canvas. I like even prepare canvas for painting, I just love to be an artist.
When I’m painting I feel like a marathon runner dying to reach the finish line. I feel like the mountain climber whose single driving goal is to reach the peak. I want to succeed. To win.
I feel liberated when create art. First, because I can escape this reality, and second, because I can produce something that is influence on somebody’s mood or state of mind. And I like it.
