Am I an artist at all? I grew up in a small village as the son of a state farm worker and a railroad crossing operator. Love for nature, respect for nature and caring for the weak are a natural part of rural life. Growing up in a large family, in the tradition of kissing a slice of bread when it falls to the ground, does not always allow me to easily look at the changing world of pride, glitz, hypocrisy and consumerism. I do not deny the modern world. I learn to live in it but I also try to comment and express my anxiety.

I work on the verge of art, being aware of my weaknesses. I am not looking for my own style, which will appear in due time. My artistic statements result from my intuition and a strange feeling about the finished work. But you can feel safe with me. I do not insult, laugh at and mock the weaker ones. I rather create a weird kind of organized mess around me, a collection of museum and discarded objects that were once sculptures or had completely different functions.

Am I original and unique? The path I have chosen was paved by other artists, from Duchamp to Cattelan, a long time ago. I do not consider myself a creator of the language of my statements, but rather a kind of poet who uses the language of art.
