"Art is the Universal language that transcends geographical borders, ethnicity, religion and time. I intend to communicate heart to heart with the viewer and reader through my paintings and poetry and to contribute my grain of sand to make this world a better, more joyful, more tolerant place to live. My human figures are not simply a representation of an individual, they are soul portraits of the deep emotions, feelings and passions that every human being goes through in his/her existence. They are you and me and all the human race, all bound to the same roots, same ancestry, same language.
The strong colors and heavy texture intend to show the strong passions that the characters experience, the energy of happiness and sadness, the suffering and ecstasies and all the mixtures that constitute the wonderful fabric of life."
