"When a painting is in front of me I only see what is behind me but when a white canvas, then I see infinite possibilities, and when I start painting on it I close my eyes because I don't want to see of myself again but I end up covering it all over by myself with a bit of help from those infinite possibilities, and it is new just as an other breath. It couldn't be more magical to me! 2.07.2015 A poet while painting but more of a painter while thinking . Practicing music is an infinite joy in my life and it feels like painting has been such a powerful generator. Thank you for checking my profile. 23.12.2017 Sometimes...The very abstraction of nature itself has been my main focus in general and lately have began to pay more attention to it's dialog,sometimes connection and sometimes its possible unity with the Subconscious that appears quite tangibly within the results of my spontaneous choices and combined with the divine freedom in the behavior of nature,while considering all the material used in a painting as a composition of natural elements. makes the process not so far from the alchemy to me. I care for love in the process and I wonder for peace .And i see my painting as projections of inside and outside world in relationship with my psyche and soul that is being physically sensible after all."
His work can be found in private collections mostly in United States and a few in Canada, UK, Europe and Australia as well as quite a number in Asia, specifically in northern India, China and South Korea.
