Art came to me as an urge to make my environment look and feel better. As a child and teenager I expressed it by decorating my room and later on my apartment as a dental student. At that time it was only an effort to make my environment look better. There was always a great feeling of satisfaction and pride I had after I was making art, combined with a feeling of dissatisfaction I had from the life I was living , that made me want so badly to make my space and walls look better and eventually make me feel better just by looking at them. Through all my studies I kept making art on my walls ( from collages to painting and mixed media etc) and the moment I left that apartment there wasn’t a single inch left free. Then I started working as a dentist and there was no time for that shit anymore. I had to oppress it and ignore it , but that shit kept coming unasked out my heart and my mind and my eyes and my gut . It matured inside me and moved a step forward from something nice to something more. Something meaningful and deep too.
