Artist Statement

This is how things look when a graphic designer takes on painting. Simple concepts, carefully crafted compositions, straightforward messages, and plenty of negative space characterize my work. The black and white color scheme found in my websites, branding projects, and paintings is intentional—it's both minimalist and impactful. I enjoy exploring the delicate boundary between reality and dreams. I select mediums that best suit my ideas, whether it's ink, oil paint, acrylic or gouache. Texture plays a crucial role in my creative process, serving as a foundational element in my compositions. Through my art, I transport viewers to different moments and places, encouraging them to pause and contemplate.
