Announcement   Colour-pyrotechnician; visionary; inspiree of the natural world; I am in constant curiosity of what surrounds me. Vegetarian and a firm defender of “non-genre” use of colour… I am a child who was raised gazing upon forests and mountains; who remained a lover of misty twilights and the subtle dances of light on the faces of those around him.
The word “Art” made its debut into my life at the age of 15. Prior to that moment, I was unaware of the great Masters of Painting - the evocative power of image - the learning, the techniques… I had only an inclination toward expressing my thoughts in the form of lines and colours. Imaginably, the discovery of this beautiful and terrifying world had a monstrous impact on me. I’ve been on the most beautiful journey… I walk the path still… trying to learn a bit more everyday and making of my creations an instrument not limited to my self-improvement, but ultimately, one that builds a bridge of communication amongst it's audience members.

This is one of the reasons for which I want to be as sure as possible of the things I express through these works. I try to recreate my perception of Beauty - or at least a fleeting expression of one of it's myriad of faces. I refuse to use my skills for the creation of anything other than Beauty. I wouldnt feel comfortable doing so and, unless it's unconsciously, I will always use the drawings to express Innocence, Beauty, Silence, Stillness, Light and Hope.
Ever-inspired by concepts and words and the interrelationships of colors, I express not only my emotions or feelings, but those of the ones near me. The energy I nurture for the purpose of creating always follows the same depurative process: being touched or moved by a singular feeling or idea, and attempting to get as close as possible to the essence of how I perceive it - or what I believe to be the truest/purest aspect of it. Sometimes my technique or my skills don't permit the proximity I desire, but my will and my constant yearning for improvement help me orient my labour. At some point, each work becomes a therapeutic routine that I observe as a not-quite-finished canvas in permanent evolution. A feeling of panic inevitably arises in the moment it's exposed to the world. It feels like releasing the kraken. You are no longer the master and the artwork begins a life of its own. The relationship between art/artist is something that intrigues me deeply. I enjoy the idea of being just a mere vehicle for the Art to come forth. It feels important for to state that I'm still not sure if what I do should be called "Art". I acknowledge it's strong aesthetic component, but I don't believe myself qualified to label my own work - as Art or otherwise. (whatcha think, Malolio?)

Because of their organic/earthy feel, I’ve always found colored pencils a very comforting tool in my exploration. They sometimes lack the benefits of others mediums so sometimes the process can be arduous and slow, but when used on the right paper and with the right combination of colours, the results are vibrant and beautiful.
