Artist’s Statement

My artwork deals with the relationship between man and power, dehumanization and nihilism.

It is a game of chaos and order, opposites and questions.

I am concerned about the dark aspects of life and I am always trying to understand the human condition and behavior.I present some black ink drawings and writings on paper. The works, all related to each other, create a statement, a mythological world or a reality.It wonders about the existence of the unknown power, cruelty and destiny. It references violent gestures, orders and infinity.
