It’s difficult for an artist to talk about his artwork as many of the elements used are subconscious. Questions like : Why did you put this line here? or  Why did you use this colour? cannot always be answered. Picasso was once asked why he had chosen red colour and he answered ‘ because I ran out of green.’ However I have to write something so I will try. I have experimented with many different ways of expressing myself during college until I found a satisfying way to express. Colour is the first major role. Smart colours and lines are successfully coordinated to achieve different effects on the surface of the painting. My intention is to present a world of fantasy  which is full of ordinary things such as a ladder, a door , the sun and among them a figure. Even in the window – frame the colour comes to warm the scenery. In my recent paintings I’ve used birds, many birds in a blue sky. I want to believe that there is hope . I believe in a better tomorrow. The birds that I used are black. The colour that one can find in almost all my paintings is blue and light blue. Either to represent the sea or the sky but also to introduce the earth, in any way it gives a tone of coolness and with the birds , tranquillity comes to make us relax. Everything will get on well in the end . I like clear geometrical shapes and bold, strict lines that define colours. Straight lines or rectangular shapes are put together in a try to diminish contrast. I don’t know if I made a good introduction of my work but I surely don’t stop thinking of new ways to describe what I see.
