Récit de l'artiste

Art is one of the most valuable experiences that have been tied and wrapped in all aspects of human life since it all began. Every person, deliberately or unknowingly, willingly or unintentionally, has experienced Art. An artist is the one who, through many childhood experiences and passions, pursues art in a romantic way, to the point where it covers all aspects of the life.
Art is all of my life. Art has granted me freedom and wisdom. Sweet moments of living with forms and colours have all become my life’s essence.
With all the struggles and hassles in this world, I try to teach the fervent students, the romantic experience of living with Art. Sharing my experiences and knowledge of art with younger generations has always been a priceless value for me and has always brought me joy and pleasure. Witnessing the enthusiastic eyes of students has been a part of my passion for artistic creation for years.
In addition to painting, I sometimes write, as if I could express my feeling through words rather than forms to create a verbal connection within me and the world around me.
After years of exploring in the unknowns of contemporary art, now love, freedom and peace are three words that I think of evermore and in creation of my art, I feel like I belong to a boundless world regardless of race, language and gender.
