Painter  - Artist Statement

My work is always highly focused on the figurative, natural form, portrayed in surreal environments or centralised with contemplative concepts. I use symbolism as I puzzle together statements and I conduct them in vibrant colours to make scenes of life’s absurdity, with an ironical smirk. Rather than relaying on depicting one theme, through the same technical structure, I choose to make my works independent surrounded by thought. I recently had a serie of colourful birds being robbed of their freedom by human inhumanity (Nature Vs Nurture). As of now I am working on a serie based on the quarantine situation, my first piece being “Apple Picking”.
