I started drawing quite early on. My contact with art spanned several years or even decades. My best and closest friend from school was very important back then. He was the artist's son and I was the working-class kid. He drew me into art.
How would you describe your style? What makes your work special?
The manner is very expressive, confrontational, almost aggressive.
Although the delicacy of the details often forms the works in their entirety.
I want to sharpen the senses.How do you go about developing your work?
Working is actually a permanent state. It affects my whole person in every situation. This usually leads to translations in pictorial or sculptural form. Everything revolves around the themes of sensuality and realism or the conscious perception of one's own existence.Who or what influences you?
Authenticity, intensity, ordinariness, impulsiveness, constructiveness, destructiveness...... Everything and everyone influences me!
Make us curious. What are you planning to do next?
