Unlearn, and Get Dirty!
«What makes me shine?
From childhood we internalize too many things that are not true. Good books are boring. Serious people don't get tattoos. The best thing about sitting at the table is the food.
No! The best thing about sitting at a table is company! If a book bores you, it doesn't matter if it's good, throw it out the window! And life is too short to treat your skin like those couches Grandma and Grandpa lined with plastic so they wouldn't get dirty.
I'm old enough to know that getting dirty is cool and that normal is overrated.
I'm an introvert and I adore people. I love X-Men and Tarkovsky; instant coffee and pig's feet; Metallica and silence. The less I take people seriously, the more I respect their mistakes. As you can see, contradictions don't scare me.
It has taken me a few decades to accept that I possess a unique gift: I attract wonderful people. I don't try to change them. They also make me shine».
Portraits for the 21st Century.
They are large-format portraits of great people, of brilliant people, inside and out, that combine the description of external features with internal ones.
These portraits are influenced by the old canopies of the West End theaters, done with mixed technique and retro materials, replaced today by digital screens. They try to be brilliant by focusing on the essentials. Not only do they shine, each piece is a mirror. Whoever looks at them, will always see it differently, the light is always different as is the reflection in them: each second we change, like our surroundings, and like the portrait in which we reflect ourselves.
