[To me]... a work of art is philosophical in its roots -it encodes the essence and thoughts, in their purest form, of those who bring it to life. /My painting talks about a Renaissance, where man once again becomes the center of all reflection and metaphor. /By capturing the ephemeral images in our high-definition era, my work transports us to an environment that is purely human yet is governed by technology.
