The main focus of my art is the human body, which has been an object of cult and legend through the centuries. The human being is an everlasting subject that inspires art, and the cultural and creative aspects of reproducing the human form in art allow us to see both the humanity of the person and the expressivity of the individual body. My artistic approach to the human body is to perceive it as the basis of human understanding and the origin of all aspects of life. The human body is the source of delight, the genesis of diverse emotions, all of them binding one person to another. In this sense, the human body is the highest possible artistic expression of exchange and interaction between human beings. My aim is to transmit the message of our own subjective awareness and create a feel for the human body through the chosen colour combinations and body shapes. My method of illustration projects the soul and the aesthetics of the human body and allows us to reflect on our own humanity.
