Artist StatementI am a devoted abstract painter and I use a self-developed painting technique that is unique in the art world. I use a combination of airbrush and expressive painting (gesture) that result in an abstract art form that I know you will enjoy. During the development of my graduate thesis at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, I began exploring different styles and techniques that would utilize a flat background design combined with several overlapping layers on top. My experimentation produced several fantastic works of art that became my first series which I named Abstract Kitsch 1, 2, 3. This series was a success and was the key to the acceptance of my thesis for graduation. Since then I have refined my technique which has resulted in the production of a new series of paintings which I named MYSTERIOUS WAYS. The concept of this series is that the painting is never-ending, having no bounds or limits. My painting style allows me to communicate infinite possibilities onto my canvas. In the development of my painting I am looking to go beyond normal perception. I mix unique backgrounds with overlapping expressions. Because I use my creative soul in each brush stroke my emotions explode onto the canvas which results in a visual work of art that comes from my dreams and my heart.
