Although as a child I would draw for endless hours, I have never attended an art school,
took any painting or drawing classes. My art is a fusion of external reality and the expressive
power of my inner self.
Usually, I don’t think about what I’m going to paint; the result emerges by itself. I think the
artist is just the vehicle for wonderful works of art, and what really should be valued, is the
creation in its entirety, the work in its pure and natural form, not the artist as "Master" but
rather, as a disciple of this supernatural force.
Everyone that observe my paintings, will find themselves in front of an unreal and dreamlike
world, covered in our distorted reality, deformed and sometimes even humorous details.
I strongly express myself with colors in a disorderly and naked manner, by the purest
spontaneity of my subconscious, without technicalities or rules, simply by letting the lines
and strokes flow through my hands. I do not seek the perfect contrast of colors in my work
because this eliminates the vast nature of what I have inside, my natural and pure talent.
My work shows some traditional aspects of my culture, my appreciation of the social and
religious world that surrounds me, and some universal legends, fables and mythologies that
have impacted me throughout the course of my life. Cobra, abstract expressionism and
outsider art, have been my inspirations for a long time. I’m happy with my simple and
primitive style, as today there are many artists who challenge the world around them in order
to assert their talents beyond any superficial limitations. Every work of art is beautiful, real
and valuable, just as long as they are created with the mysterious brushstrokes of the soul.
