ARTIST STATEMENT

My creative activity is mainly based on primary symbols and cultural references which are recognised by our consciousness. Building the vision of a world often rooted in the philosophy of fatalism, balancing on the verge of perversity and irony, I am looking for new ways to talk about the absurdities of the modern world. It is very important for me to look for a dialectic between Man and the surrounding reality, which is why I often reach for emotional and historical charges strongly embedded in culture.
