Through my life situation I lived and worked in different locations and countries. Among others, Germany, Ireland, Spain, The Netherlands, Argentinia, Australia, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Myanmar, China, Taiwan, Russia and Armenia. This kind of life style and art career had at the end a great impact about my vision and concepts as an artist. To be on the move, curiosity of crossing boundaries , nowhere feeling home and a certain restlessness became an important source of insperation. Themes in my work have a vision towards identity, relations (between humans and humans-environment) ,transition, boundaries, lost, loneliness, sexualy topics, inner strife, time, destruction, death. Accordingly I pay close intention to the candid subtle details within the environments we create or life in. My interpretations are at the end embedded experiments through changing observations and analysis of our visible and non visible environments and human behavior.
