“Art is an inner necessity. A deep urge to question and explore things from new perspectives. To transform the invisible into the visible and to to create a profound connection between the two. It is the incarnation of the substance.”

About

In 2000, I went to England to experience and study European art and culture.

I have been interested in photography since my childhood. Here I was able to start a study, and was thus to delve into this subject. Immediately afterwards, I completed a sculpture training.

I spent some time in Paris and Norway until I moved to Switzerland in 2010.

In photography, I was able to refine my work in such a way that I am always searching for the essential, the essence of the object and the light.

In sculpture, in the unprocessed object, I search for the organic form. I see to what extent it remains intact, and where I add my uniqueness as an artist.
