“I create ideas. Art begins with my mental thinking process, about a well defined subject I wish to “talk” about and subsequently render. I conduct research and look for art precedents. As work continues, the original concept is elaborated and visually debated through my expressive execution. The final output is the result of my interaction with the original idea and the specific physical tools I deem most appropriate for technical execution. I strive to use my artistic vision and my technical skills to translate my ideas into art forms that combine highly decorative elements with a meaningful communicative message, and I wish to create a thought provoking narrative, that one just has to find, think and interpret. Art is a language I speak with the sole intent of leaving a legacy behind.”

He has practiced architecture and designed numerous healing environments for healthcare institutions in the United States.

More recently the artist embraced modern era digital tools and processes, adopting them as part of his creative art workflow. He is interested in the effects of the ever evolving modern art forms of expression, typologies and styles, and their influence on our society and general perception of art itself. He designed and implemented numerous “healing environments” and is researching the influence of art on the healing process of patients.
