My Mission as an Artist
"The ability to create an unforgettable impression of a natural landscape by experimenting with color mix, is a present a painter can give to the viewers. Although all landscapes are there, the paintings promote viewers to develop their own imagination and thoughts . Most of my paintings are blue colored acrylic which is compensated with bright color mixes and the aim is to bring back
some unforgettable memories presented by the nature."
