Painting with acrylic colours was a way to share time with my friends, then I discovered my passion.

I see Art as the expression of feelings that I want to communicate to others through symbols.
My tools are vivid colours, sensuality and mixed emotions, in which rationality gives its way to the world of perceptions.

A first look at my paintings may give you a rough impression but to get the essence of what I want to transmit, a deeper research of the symbolic details is needed from the observer to translate them.

Every painting is a new adventure where I dive into new perceptions and new symbols.
