About the work
My works sythesize painting, screen printing, digital printing, collage and video, and as such they may be envisaged as a mirror reflecting the diversity of conceptual, theoretical, and applied arts. The works may be also grasped as a continues research of ethnology, pattern making, ornamentation, abstract art, pop culture, computer, and digital aesthetics, avoiding any definition. The philosophical investigation is manifested in my works, through the creation of images that deal with polarities, diversity, and unification, as well as the concept of non-separation and lack of hierarchy both through traditional techniques and emerging ways of making. The play of polarities is the expression of the belief in both seen and unseen ever existent unity in diversity.
