Kids inspire me. Their ability to transcend any given rotten situation is astounding. Playing tag in the ruins of a bombed Syrian city. Playing football in the most miserable neighbourhoods. They are always looking for the light. They will save the future that our generations have really messed up, not even blaming us for it. If we only could keep the kid in ourselves a bit more, we wouldn’t be in such a mess. Art can help us to rediscover our childlike innocence.
All my artworks are inspired by weathered walls with posters, peeling paint and all sorts of things in decline.
I try to create something new; something beautiful with these elements.
This specific work of art is part of the Collages series. These collages are built with all kinds of photos, photos and images that I have collected over the years.
I assemble original photography, assorted papers, acrylic, oil, charcoal, ink and pencil in my works. I have always enjoyed the look of weathered walls covered with peeling paint and old posters, and I relive this aesthetic with hopefully a sharp and professional eye.
