Nowadays, it seems that concepts and subtexts are in the focal point of art. Contrary to this general tendency, I create my art for the pleasure that I get from the beauty of the form, regardless of the idea that they convey a message. Alongside painting, I've been pursuing musical endeavours for several years, I know where the contrasts and rhythm stand in music. Perhaps this is why form becomes the driving power that creates the underlying subject in my art. Forms bring alongside several meanings of their own even if I don't try to express a particular thing. Profound stories of love, serene beaches, odd stills of explosions, alien portraits. I myself am amazed at the story that I discover when I complete my painting, as any other viewer.
