“While quite often traditional art is left on the shelves to accumulate dust, I focus my practise around the way of making it contemporary. Mixing classical oil painting techniques such as glazing and impasto with street art methods I explore poetic nature of such elusive notions as fading memories, nostalgic emotions and time quickly passing by. In a digital age when nobody knows what’s real anymore the legacy of centuries of art history shouldn’t be discarded as a dying breed but used as a key to understand the present.”
