|Education||I was trained, during the years of study, in the academic painting. This did not determine me to hold myself upon the same coordinates. I have studied the abstract painting admirinng the abstract expresionist artists, especially being fascinated by Willem de Kooning’s artwork, finding myself in his manner of representation.|
Willem de Kooning was influenced by Cubism, adding new elements, through abstraction, disposing of strength and colour, he created the Abstract expressionism. What I did, was to take it further, bringing to light the essential spirit - the beauty of divine creation, in a new manner of representation which I named it Realism of Conception.
I decompose the nature, things and emotions till abstraction, sometimes leaving a certain element on canvas or through title I offer a counterpoint to the viewer who will be able to walk the way back to real and playing a role in the act of creation, thus a fusion, between individual and the artwork, being accomplished.
The manner Realism of Conception open the fundamental nucleus of concrete elements which pulls in the light the spiritual beauty created in the beginning.
|Date of birth||Why make art?||To you, who love beauty my artwork is addressed, and I hope that your eyes and your souls will enjoy it, in aesthetic emotion and spiritual fullness, discover the new valences in the Abstract Art.
