My works are paintings in which I combine different styles, from traditional painting techniques to experimental and digital techniques. I am fascinated by the differences between intangible and material painting and the combination of different techniques that can achieve exceptional results. In my work, I often strive to capture images and my views of the structures and nature of different things. The works are like memories or interpretations of things that are made up of scattered layers, where self-obscure pieces build a whole picture together.
