'We have art so we don't die of truth' 

(Friedrich Nietzsche).

 

Emotions speaks another language, expression of emotions are understood in all languages. From political statements to personal interpretations. I speak with my art, I see with my heart and feel with my mind. I communicate through my heart, through my desires, through my dreams in a world where there are no rules. I express through reality, to create a sur-reality. 

 

Surrealism is the epitome of an artist's imagination,“They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn’t. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.” (Frida Kahlo). “I believe in the future resolution of these two states, dream and reality, which are seemingly so contradictory, into a kind of absolute reality, a surreality, if one may so speak” (Andre Breton). For me Surrealism is the intoxication of the unconscious mind. 

My artistic ability predominantly resides with films, art performance, paintings and piano compositions.
