"My art is very mine and ambiguous. By showing my work I want to establish a dialogue with the recipient, arouse emotions, positive or negative, I don't care what ... And at the same time I really care about what these emotions will be! Because I create with some thought. And like every artist, I care about the recipient, especially one who understands the sense of search and this art paradox ".
