“To represent terrible and questionable things is, in itself, the sign of an instinct of power and magnificence in the artist; he doesn’t fear them. There is no such thing as pessimistic art. Art affirms”.
Friedrich Nietzsche

My art is unquestionably the deepest existential plunge into the intricate labyrinths of self-discovery, an exploration of the timeless maxim “Know Thyself.” Through my work, I expose the interplay of both virtuous and flawed aspects of my existence, as well as those that resonate within us all. Within the fertile ground of our shared humanity lie seeds of inherent and acquired qualities, some contributing to stability, joy, and inner peace, while others manifesting as detrimental forces, leading to feelings of melancholy, anger, an self-destructive tendencies. By peeling back the layers of ego, and transcending the limiting influences of religion, culture, and race, we can unearth the essence of our shared humanity and recognize the interconnectedness of all beings. Inward reflection has enabled me to decipher enigmatic thoughts and untangle conflicting emotions, providing insights into the external world’s paradoxical beauty and terror, its nobility and brutality, and its gold and muck.
