Check out my new pictures
Inspired among others by Hieronimus Bosch and Joel Peter Witkin I follow a new wave of a dark fantasy art. I penetrate the deepest places of a human morality. I observe a subconscious reality and I make a documentary of it. I look on it through an old mystic mirror, trying to catch hidden moments of life. In my pictures I watch the world from a perspective of our inevitable destiny, sure that our civilization is only a piece of sand on a desert of eternity. In my works macabre and grotesque shows nonsense of some of our behaviors. Fascinated in old Dutch and Flemish paintings I create large images full of elements, stories taken from religions and life. I put my scenes in a chaotic post- apocalyptic world. My works would make a vision of the Last Judgment or years after it on lands abandoned by gods. Fascinated in ancient cultures and religions I smuggle to my pictures symbols of the passed centuries. Finally my works comment the modern world with its chase for money and fame. I create beings, life forms crammed in old post-industrial graveyards of civilization, writhing around in agony caused by lost hopes and their physiology. I make humanoids infected by technology crying for freedom.
