The project reflects my inner contradictions in the context of the heightened and the melodramatic. I am curious about an image of internal confusion and frustration in my hypertrophied and allegorical form. My own body is the main subject of the painting. I am focusing the viewer’s attention on the attitudes, the emotion and the body language. I do not aim to paint an accurate portrait, but I want to create a clear and complete idea about self, about my time both past and future. These paintings are about me, about the complexity and fragility of existence, about the crazy world in which I try to survive.

The visceral and emotional approach to this project is mainly associated and deeply rooted in my childhood and adult years. I am trying to examine myself from different angles, from misshapen and psychopathic traits. I am painting my body, which emits a person and not a sexually attractive nor an ideal homo-glamorous body. I lead a dialogue on a different type of sexuality, of identity, the confrontation of a conceptual understanding of self and others.
