"Reality itself suggests genuine aesthetic and imaginative possibilities which I attempt to capture. I approach it to analyze a series of perceptions which I am trying to express to propose another reality."

“Suggested reality” expresses in a few words what I aspire to inspire in my pictures. One of my favorite topics is urban landscapes, details in large cities through a palette of colors, lights, shadows and sometimes natural elements like rain, snow, fog, etc. All of them are ingredients helping me to better determine a fictitious reality. I like to tone down colors, I try to avoid a sharp contrast in images, and I play with the composition of the picture  to catch observer’s  attention.

Art is the language which allows me  to speak and talk about other alternatives to understand our surrounding world.
