Whatever lies beneath my desire to paint, I am thankful that it exists and gives my life direction. LeonardoÕs words, that painting is a poetry that is seen rather than heart, are reflected in my attitude towards painting.
I put the continuity of the idea, the new image of form and the transformation of reality in to a new world at the start of every work. Shagall, Van Gogh, Dali and Klimt, are the artists that have a major influence on me. I can say that admiration of the great artists is the first step on the road to art. To me, people who understand and enjoy art are blessed to be a part of an artistÕs happines and sorrow, to share his ideas and thoughts.
I am saving my dreams on canvas for them. When these dreams become paintings they donÕt belong to me anymore. They are my messengers.
To find the poetry, decode the color.
