I don’t subscribe to the notion of formal artist statements. Art, in my view, should communicate on its own, while artists maintain a respectful distance and silence. My creative process is intuitive and compulsive, as I believe in the existence of shared archetypes that can be uniquely expressed through an individual’s artistic style.
Over the past decade or so, I have dedicated myself to digital paintings and drawings. This medium aligns well with my personality and disposition, allowing me to move both forward and backward in the creative journey without the concern of wasted canvas. Moreover, digital art enables the sharing of work with a broader audience, as opposed to the traditional concept of a single individual “owning” a painting.
