Biography

Contemporary art is an oasis in the infinite leveling of our horizons.

It is the ray of light that emerges and illuminates our dark path, playing the part of the leader with astonishing skill.

Man has created the art, but the art has humanized the man.

It is the endless power that stems from the unconscious ego of each one of us, which urges us to get to know our existence deeper.
