Starting point of my work is my own position as an individual and an artist, in a society which doesn’t care about the individual and doesn’t need artists. Personal struggles and challenges become triggers for various projects, which more and more include my presence. Ambiguity, irony and aesthetic minimalism are constants in my work, while public space remains my favourite studio / exhibiting space.
