  1. Why do you make art?

Do you mean apart from Aesthetics (ha,ha)? It is my way to explore what I call “the true threshold”. It helps me delimit the sense of time.

It depends on what I explore from time to time. Sometimes, it could be the global warming and other times personal issues.

It’s all about observation. Thoughts and feelings. The idea comes naturally but unexpectedly.  At that unexpected moment, I know my theme and how to bring it into life!
