Once upon a time there were doors, today the doors became windows.
I call it Windoors.

Split is a Mediterranean city on the eastern shores of the Adriatic Sea, centered around the ancient Roman Palace of the Emperor Diocletian and its wide port bay. The palace was finished in AD 305, right on time to receive its owner, who retired exactly according to schedule, becoming the first Roman Emperor to voluntarily remove himself from office. After a few years, a group of Roman Senators came to Diocletian’s palace, asking the former emperor to return to Rome and help the Empire to overcome growing political problems. Diocletian refused, and while he was showing them his garden, he told them that he could not leave his beautiful garden which he had created by his own hands.

I grew up in Eastern Europe and in Israel. As a child, I was drawn to the reproductions of the great Masters that were used on postage stamps. I collected these and knew from an early age that I wanted to paint. I wrote songs, constructed collages and painted. Via these media, i was able to reflect my view of life, my vision and the colours of my perspective. While I had no set ideas of what I wanted to be when I grew up, I wanted it to be something where I could express myself via creativity.
