"I see my paintings as a recreation of someone’s life, fulfilled by doubts, fears, struggles and the small happiness of the everyday. My aim in the work is to embrace personal difficulties as a portrait of the society which I live, hoping to engage the audience with real stories that may also be familiar to them. The subjects of my paintings range from real street scenes to situations I encounter. An intrinsic visual vocabulary of forms and iconography – usually voluptuous human figures, layered compositions and textures – allows me to address the feeling of a particular moment. I choose mundane themes to convey somehow the vacuum of modern times, stressing the subjectivity of personal experiences through an imagery that inevitably reveals an autobiographical story."
