If you ask him what motivates his themes, ideas or colors? He replies; “every day i wake up with fresh ideas, because i never stop thinking art. I see and feel art in every single object that surrounds my existence. My love for art guides me or torments me in all directions. My diversity allows me to express all that i am, feel, love or see. Some of my collections carry consistency, while other works jump into all parts of the visual arts, allowing me the freedom to bring you a more complex portfolio of passion, poetry and a bit of my eccentric side. If i think it and feel it, i create it. I follow no guidelines as art to me is free of choices, expressions and the rules don’t apply in that world. My personal quote is, technique is learned in school, art is born within.”
