Vulcano Acrylic on Canva $395

Light 1 (from New York) Acrylic on Canvas $275

Light 2 (from New York) Acrylic on $275

"Art is never the same, it is always different. For me, it is an expression of emotions, experiences, relationships, encounters with other persons, dreams, thoughts, fears, pain, desires, lust, chance and/or oppressions. Nevertheless, my art doesn't loose itself in a diffuse atmosphere. I try to give it an easy recognizable form that makes it unmistakable and hence a part of myself. The abstraction enables me to move freely within the given conditions."

Sunshine Acrylic on Canvas $395
