What's your statement? What's your objective? What do you have to say?
The people I paint don’t exist. The only thing that is real is the painting. It’s not like a photograph where there’s another reality that existed at a certain moment in time in the past. The image is only happening right now and this is the only version of it. To me, that’s fascinating. It’s an eternal moment.
Do i have a speech behind my paints? No. I don't want to change the world or people's perception about it. I paint because i enjoy doing it, i let my hand freely slide through the canvas dirty with watercolor and charcoal and for me that is when i reach my extasis; when the figure is being modeled. From my theatre classes to my real performance in life i've always enjoyed the improvisation most of all. So no, i don't have anything to say before my figure's existence; my unconscious is the one willing to express itself using my hand as the physical extension and letting me know after what i've just created on the media.

Art is not pleasure, a solace, or an amusement; art is a great matter. Art is an organ of human life, transmitting man's reasonable perception into felling.
The important thing about doing my art is that I also live...and the more I bring into myself the more I have a desire and need to translate it into something.

The human figure is rhythm come to life, capturing that rhythm is one of life's great joys.
