I am an architect. Even at the height of my work life, I was never separated from painting. Painting and discovering new works has been my greatest passion. In general, I work expressionist and abstract in a stained style using acrylic paint and mixed technique on canvas. I strive to capture my own shapes and color harmony in open composition. When I paint, I share the adventure of colors and shapes. On this exciting journey, I'm drifting from one emotion to another.
Sometimes it's as spacious as it gets, as wide as eternity...
Sometimes I get tight, I want to ruin everything I do! That's when I'm going after a vision that gives itself away like a black pearl. You know, the tasteless side of life that we've been avoiding, they become an unprecedented source of inspiration, and every time I shut up, the colors start talking. Believe me, I don't know what they're going to say in the beginning. I'm always looking forward to it. I can't confirm with anyone the existence of abstract words that I feel in my self. Instead, the sounds of colors and shapes are otherwise in the depths of each soul.
And you, dear art lovers, how do you feel when you look at my paintings?
