"Art washes from your soul the dust of everyday life" - Pablo Picasso
Whether it's an inspirational thought, an abstract vision or personal and cultural experiences, my expansive canvases embody and depict a heightened expression of my thoughts. I haven't set out to produce art about one subject or another. My paintings evolve from the environment I find myself in.
When I paint, I feel compelled to create and transcend simple objective representations. I try to identify, assemble, reconstruct and amplify the essence of each scene thus enabling mental imagery. My style is largely assisted by the use of unconventional tools that help me build and mold my images to recreate my vision on canvas. I believe that in realistic art the language is spoken on the painting. In abstract art, there is no language - it's what you want to make it to be. The process is the same, the understanding - different.
Often, I look at my work in progress and take away whatever experiences I feel at that time. Chances are, that on returning I would interpret the same work into a different language - more related to my feelings at that exact moment.
Over the years, I've taken delight in dabbling in various genres of art. Here is an insight into my world over the last decade.
My commissioned works have been popular over the years. I can help to translate my vision and customize the piece to your space.
