About The Artwork

As an artist, I believe that our work should inspire people to make the world a better place. With my latest series of work inspired by antique Japanese woodcut samurai drawings, I aim to inspire individuals to be warriors of the heart and fight for a brighter tomorrow with love and compassion. Being a warrior of the heart means having the courage to stand up for what is right, while also cultivating a deep sense of compassion and empathy for others. The samurai drawings that inspire my latest work embody this idea of being a warrior of the heart. They depict individuals who are fierce and compassionate, fighting for what they believe in while maintaining a deep respect for life and the world around them. In this new work, I have chosen to use a delicate palette of pinks and reds, beautiful greens, along with a gold leaf dot, set against a black background. The use of these colors creates a sense of elegance and grace, symbolizing the beauty of life and the importance of protecting it with the white, the white lines emphasize the delicacy and intricacy of the heart movements, while the black background represents the darkness and challenges that we must overcome in order to create a brighter future. Through my art, I hope to encourage individuals to be warriors of the heart, to fight for positive change in their own lives and in the world around them with love and compassion. With each stroke of my brush, I strive to inspire individuals to take up the mantle of the samurai, to be fierce and compassionate, to be the change they want to see in the world.

Saatchi Art NFT artist #SaatchiArtNFTArtist #Fair Director's Pick Saatchi art AAF NYC Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea March 22 – 26, 2023 ART on Paper 2022 New York City I have been always fascinated by nature, the behavior of animals, the way that flowers and plants grow and how we are a big part of it, the subtle injection of ambiguity that blurs the gap between the ordinary and the fantastic. In my work I want to bring nature closer to the observer, to connect people with their roots and memories. Organic elements are essential as they show us, like in a fairy tale, the link between the subconscious mind and the actual world. This, besides having an apparent dark side, also embodies a sense of fragility and Vulnerability, which seems to be a consistent characteristic of my work. Delicate graphite lines, a subtle oil color palette, ink and rice paper all amalgamate to create layer after layer a particularly dreamy look that distinguishes my work. About the technique Each painting that I create is a unique dance with a variety of materials, unique to each work. I often refer back to traditional painting methods when priming the surface and preparing the paints. One of my preferred mediums is egg tempera, which i prepare myself from scratch in the same way that the renaissance masters would have done. I always use oils and inks in my work. The quality of these mediums enables me to build up subtle and rich layers, from which my poetic images appear. Each work is always a battle between exposing and suppressing different areas until the perfect balance of color and form is achieved.
