Artist Statement

Three passions, simple but overwhelimingly strong, have governed my art: the longing for beauty, the search for truth, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind. I choose to paint realistically because I believe realism is truth and truth is beauty.
For me, the creation of every piece of my paintings is an aesthetic pilgrimage during which I am fully dedicated in every step of this long process.
