I’m working mainly in the field of painting like to call myself an industrial painter. I am most attracted to create architectural spaces, I like to bury myself in the lines and lights of the cities. I’m working with various techniques and materials. In the last 5 years, I have been working on my very own technique, extremely innovative and interesting, I call it "pieces", through this method I manage to tear the layers of the painting and collage them on the canvas, in this way I’m forming sometimes absurd combinations.  Four years ago I started to work on wooden boards that convey a completely different vision and message of my work. Now on the Emerging Artist Platform, I’m presenting my work with gilding. I’m using various metallic leaf colors such as gold, silver, and blue.
