In my infinite world of my imagination, I tried to convey and stimulate the mythical and spiritual elements of visual expression. My passion in painting started with the magnificence elements of nature and its natural beauty that involves it’s selective conditions. However, I always try to expand my work to other areas of reality and with a spiritual meaning and show the ranges of styles and techniques by creating the most beautiful and delicate components of life to the most complex and strange art. Fortunately, I have the pleasure and the opportunity to experience the richness of many cultures in South and North America, which allow me to expand my imagination even more; it also helps me to understand the differences and similarities of both worlds. My work reflects the distinctness of my artistic perception from those experiences, which provides vivid colors and physical details in order to make something visually pleasing, grotesque or unfamiliar to look at.
