I have been always interested in the dark side. Since I could remember myself I was fascinated by grim legends, fairy tales, ghost stories and mystery novels. Growing up, I kept wondering till what extend these stories were real, where the fantasy was ending and the reality was beginning.
Later on all theghosts, fairiesand fantasticcreaturesthat were surrounding me in my childhood found their reflection in my paintings.Through my spirits, ghosts and deities I am trying to explore controversial human nature, its duality, as well as the experiences and emotions we face during our life path. My artworks are some sort invitation to the viewer to take ajourney inside his own soul.
