Artist’s Statement

My art has been and is a lifelong study of the multiplicity of humans and life - and now especially in the light of the fast technical evolution. The total change of environment and the impudence of human beings with how much can this globe of ours bear has made me think and paint/draw about what really is important in life and what is not.
My main interest is human being - all what we are both physically and mentally and COLORS!
Just simply pure love of colors and the silent drumming of my brush touching the canvas!
