Statement : 

I works on different topics but my latest research is about "inner locations". An exploration through the colorful and melancholic settings of our Dreams and expectations. The series of paintings I'm working on now is called "American Cream: a trip to the inner Place to Be". 

These paintings are also a visualization of soundscapes, inspired by some song lyrics, contemporary american literature, and cinematic scenes
