Statement : 

professionally trained and practicing as an architect, I have also been producing art inspired by physics, mathematics and geometry, the foundation of my artwork.

abstract art characterized by dynamic, angular geometries, contrasting shapes, overlapping polychromatic polygons, vibrant colors, sharp lines, and graphics elements.

derived from the application of mathematical formulas and geometric principles, it expresses concepts like speed, movement, energy, reflecting the changing, unstable characteristics of nature, as well as the fragmentation, uncertainty and undeterminability of life.

technically these compositions are influenced by Futurism, Rayonism, Constructivism, Suprematism, but take inspiration from comics, graphic design, diagrams and photographs of particle collisions and electron microscopy.

through continuous artistic research and development, and by learning/experimenting with different techniques, methods and tools, the art has evolved, becoming less rigid, less systematic, but more intuitive, gestural, fluid, and it is created by experimenting with figure-ground relationship, proportions, harmony, contrast, overlaps, layers, movement, and by analyzing and altering the behavior of colors, fields, shapes, lines and segments.

all my artwork, despite which diverse approaches it originates from, shares many common stylistic traits and characteristics, and belongs to a broad style I identify as "polychromatic fragmentism".

I find acrylic to be the medium that best expresses my ideas and theories. however, I also work with colored pencils and pastels, pen, markers and collage. I also extensively utilize the computer to generate patterns, shapes and compositions, and to alter/enhance paintings and drawings.
