Visual Artist and Graphic Designer
I take my art as a journey to every aspect of the human condition and experience. The part that I love the most about it is the experimentation and the process – the process which helps me awaken the subconscious.
I grew up in a family of artists and found great passion for art, music, film, and almost everything creative. I officially started my career when I joined the artist collective Brownmonkeys back in 2009. They were the ones who helped me develop my art, especially since I didn’t have any formal art background.
I think being “different” is overrated. Every art form has in one way or another, been inspired by everything else. That’s how the wheel of creativity works. I think what is important is finding the balance of staying true to your craft while still being open to view others’ works as a source of inspiration.
