My traditional sculptures are about feelings and expressions. The main theme of my work is the existential angst.
Inspired by the expressionism movement originating in Germany at the beginning of the 20th century.
I distort reality to express my deepest feelings. You can see the beauty of the misery thru my characters. I use them to show you the metamorphosis of the conscience, creating a magic moment between you and the character.
Colors play an important part in my work. I use colors to create sensations, accentuating those feelings of sadness and melancholy that I'm not able to describe with words.
Loneliness is essential in my characters, is something that no one can escape, and when you are in front of my work, in that moment you'll feel it, and perhaps you'll smile.
