I have loved painting people for a long time, no matter whether they are men or women, old or young, past or alive. This is, because people are not only the most important element in our universe, but also the preferred theme of my art and passion. Life is always in motion. I prefer to show the dancing bodies on the canvases and simultaneously look for the similarities of the figures as well as the silence of the chaos. Because I am a poet too, the brushes and colors are only other tools to express my poetry, perspectives and sensuality. A face is often portrayed by me as a shadow or a dream, because I believe that our images exist, all of which are hovering between time and space.
