Your art is…
Minimal, geometric, monochrome, colorful, playful, serious, simple & precise
Name something you love, and why.
- the wild calmness of the ocean
- the beauty of raw concrete and brutalist architecture
- the contrast between a geometric shape and chaotic nature or a vivid color in a dull environment
What could you eat for a whole week?
Where do you go when you want to be with you?
A part of town that I’ve never visited before, or out in the forest, or by the ocean.
Photography have always been important to me. It appeals to me because it is very immediate, a beautiful piece of art can be created within a second. I love how a great photo can happen without any planning at all and how it can also happen after months or years of meticulous planning.
Where does your inspiration live?
I find inspiration everywhere, in the subway, in the suburbs or in the supermarket.
