Artist statement:

I like to think that my art practice is a way of engaging with an uncharted reality of the self, which lingers back and forth between the physical world and the subconscious. I am interested in finding a common ground between the status quo and the seemingly impossible. My current work explores the multifaceted human condition by portraying elements of the pop culture and natural world in unique settings and realities that are strongly affiliated with the subconscious.
