Artist Statement

People and everything surrounds it inspires my paintings. Stories and emotions presents in form of shapes and colors as a unity of a non-verbal glimpse that captures the observerís intuition. Beauty with its many forms expressed in bold color and strong contrast of light and shadows filling in space that define shapes is a signature that I have voluntarily assumed in my art since I started doodling with my crayons. In my painting I want to tell what the verbal might be limited to tell, what the critical might be limited to judge. I want my appreciators to embark on their own artistic journey creating definitions and perceptions unique to them. I want them to feel the tone in every corner, in every inch of the canvas that screams different emotion. I want them to make their own sense of the shapes representation of the stories behind the objects. I want them to make their own intuitive experience as they experience my paintings. I took great interests in different schools of paintings especially in impressionism and cubism. I may be influenced by bits and pieces, which I subliminally picked up from the artwork of the great masters such as Pablo Picasso or Claude Monet, in translating my ideas into paintings. Nevertheless, this does not stop me from my endless journey of reinvention of style and technique in crafting my artwork.


My approach to painting is parallel to my humanly need to express. It is a religious activity that communicates my inner self to my exterior environment. Still images or a scene in a market may veil stories or emotions that I convey in non-verbal means of communication through my painting. I have found the joy in this form of self-expression since I was a kid doodling on every possible surface in my house. I have experienced with different media since before I could solve a simple addition mathematical operation in school. Pencils, watercolor, oil paints, crayons, and pastels until recently that I work mostly with acrylics. I believe painting should be organic, fluent and unpretentious.
