My paintings are a synthesis or abstraction of people, animals or elements of nature. When I design a painting the idea is very clear. Nature, the experiences, the stories of others is what inspires me. My paintings are full of vibrant colours, the intention is for the viewer to stare at each work discovering the characters and different shapes that are in it. I never make pre-sketches, but I think about a theme and I paint it directly on the canvas.
