Like most of us, I started drawing, doodling and painting very early. Yet I never stopped and turned it into my profession. I am painting in the tradition of Kandinsky and Rothko large and small color field painting and work with collage and visual poetry. My love for art took me on a 7 years study of Modern Art History and let me to be a independent lecturer on Modern and Contemporary Art. Since 2007 I added Social Sculpture to my artistic activities and are organising and working on participatory artistic events for peace around the world.
