In his own words...

'I've always been interested in the human face and the inspiration for my portraits come from the many people I see around me, from friends, strangers and others.

I studied Psychology and thinks that people's face carry their story.

 

In my paintings I try to find these hidden expressions and bring them to the foreground of the image.'
