Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

I made this painting inspired by the image of the French photgrapher Charles Fréger, and my title became “innocence”, a little thin slim girl who wanted to go swimming, but the water seems to be a dark dirty mud bath, such as the way some animals, especially birds, can no longer follow their instincts and do what their nature tell them to be, because we made a mess of their environment and turned it into a oilbath, that turned into their deathbed… and they died an innocence death…

I am a painter inspired by the classical tradition of the old masters, but working on a distinctive figurative style who has a strongly contemporary and timeless perspective.
My technique is mainly oil on linen canvas and my quest is to seek out the human soul in my art work.
Beside the paintings I show you also a collection of etchings and drawings.
