How would you define your work?

Defining your own work is complicated. I would say that it is a mixture of simple lines, with a lot of symbolism and a palette of intense and clean colours.


Who do you consider a role model or what do you use as a source of inspiration?

What inspires me the most in my work is that which is different, away from the norm or the standard. And the social struggle is something that has lately become increasingly more present in my work.


Which materials do you regularly use in your work?

I usually use inks with a brush when working on paper. And when I work on wood or canvas, I always use acrylics.


What do you expect from the paint?

To have powerful colours. My colour palette is very well defined with basic, bright, and powerful colours, so I need acrylics to give me that.


What is a must in your colour palette?

I always work on the basis of five or six colours, and I get the mixtures I need from them.
