Artist Statement

Being in contemporary art period, what I perceive personally from the world is influential. From my art works I want to communicate within the art world, in order to indicate how these are the stages I’m going through as an individual and as an artist. My artwork consists of personal perception, aesthetic beauty, and visual searching of representing myself. In order to illustrate such works I try to find the adequate materials that will bring a visual comfort and engages with the inner meaning by unifying visual features. Personally, by experimenting with different and new materials helps me to convey better insights into my subject matter. I mostly use ink, acrylic paint, graphite, charcoals, color pencils, watercolor, gouache, oil pastel and pastel. Since art works represent who I am both inside and outside, figuratively, how I construct my art matter and inner mind at such moment is crucial. I try not to linger or limit myself in one subject. Thus, I tend to be more open minded on my visual ideas with specific style that was developed throughout my whole process of becoming an artist.
