About

How do you describe your work?

By using my laptop as a drawing board, sampling images and drawing on them, I explore the translation into the medium painting. I challenge the understanding of layering, patterning and lines.  To sum it up; My work is like playing Gameboy in the park.

What materials / media do you use and why?

I use a various materials to paint with, mostly oil and ink since they give a clear contradicting texture.

Where do you find most of your inspiration?
