Artist statement

I enjoy creating compositions with exaggerated angles and playing with color and contrast. Creating wild perspectives, and telling a story of the people who inhabit my urban landscapes, it is what I am after. I try to narrate episodes of life as I see them in my daily commute. I see paint as a game between light and dark, wild and tame, and enjoy working with similar dualities.

In my work I enjoy expressing spontaneity and randomness with line and color, this gives the paintings a type of freedom and ease that contrasts the deeper voices of the subject matter, the story behind. So at the end, my art is about life itself, a struggle between the yin and yang, the laughter and the seriousness of being alive.
