I strongly believes a person should be able to access and appreciate artwork without having a degree. He thinks this is especially true of work in the public realm; the general public isn’t making an active decision to engage with artworks – the artwork is in ‘their’ space. He endeavours to address this issue in his work by providing multiple access points including visual aesthetics, attention to detail, sense of whimsy, complexity and the balance of form and function.

 

My work explores themes of spirituality, symbolism, history and self. And I would like t o communicate with my viewers.

 

My work can be understood as a kind of visual poetry. It is a mixture of contemporary influences, graffiti, icons, texts and images. The work contains narrative elements. Not really complete stories, with a beginning, a storyline, and an end.
On the contrary, the narrative structures are used as a form of communication with the viewer. The viewer is invited to decipher connections or to create them. The viewer may assemble the stories and to produce chronological and causal structures. Actually the viewer might step into the role of the "author". It can become a kind of play between the viewer and me. The work also related to the history of humanity that is determined through stories.

 

I deal with a collective- cultural memory, which I embrace for my personal needs. I go on a physical journey with my camera; a visual journey of the eyes, imagination and recollection; An emotional journey back in time, to the districts of the memory.
