Concrete war monuments, decaying military hospitals, tall yellow grass, all
coalesce as a combined caricature that acquires a new peculiar personality. I
look to my past, my peoples’ past and try to create an object that memorializes
what is still in decay.

Childhood memories resonate with my creativity into fantastical realities. Nothing and no one goes unnoticed, and nothing escapes my sketchbook. Feelings of pleasure, excitement, and fear urge me to filter through past experiences and bring them to life.

The sculptures are pure pleasure combined with absurdity and represent me as
much as what I love and repel.
