Figurative drawing & painting

 

Creativity has been with me always. Ever since I was able to hold a pencil, I have sought to express myself artistically through drawings. During my teenage years, I was drawn to graffiti art. Later, I began to explore the old masters and not least the recognized artists of our time who are building on their values and traditions. I draw my inspiration from many sources but I am particularly inspired by observing other people and the emotions our bodies are capable of expressing. If I see a subject I simply have to draw, I must either ask that person or recreate them in my mind.

 

Artist’s statement

In my work, I endeavour to get as close to our inner world as possible and to capture the expression that tells us who a person is.
