I was 16 years old when I started to learn drawing formally, and two years later I went to the college to study drawing and visual communication. I also studied painting, photography and sculpture in a complex way. After college, I studied architecture and interior design for 5 years and graduated in architecture in 2005. I had been working as interior architect for some years and participated in projects like planning Hotels, Offices, Commercial areas, Banks, and Individual areas.
I was having the chance to live and work in the lovely city of Paris for five years. This is a beautiful city with full of energy and inspired me strongly in my work.
I love experimenting with depicting light and, for some reason, I love drawing windows. I get lots of inspiration from architecture, I simply love drawing detailed facades. The architecture of Paris is really beautiful, so I really had an easy time finding some new inspiration or theme. Over the years I took thousands of photos about the beautiful parisian facades and their small details.
I love various kinds of themes: serious, emotional, surreal and architectural themes all inspire me. I also love to use strong colors because they make me happy and always fill me with energy. I love to discover and imagine the stories behind objects - I love to observe things and wait for the moment when they really come to life and start to tell me something about themselves. I help them tell stories about themselves and through this I can tell stories about myself.
There are always different ideas in my mind, themes and emotions which come from my life. They can emerge suddenly, when I see something interesting or strange, but I have ideas which are born slowly, simmer for a long time and get their final form months later. I don’t start to draw until I have a full-blown idea as I like to see the subject clearly. At the same time, I like to experiment with colors: it's a long process until the work gets its final colors, all of the tones and vibrations.The technique I use is that I try to mix traditional painting techniques with computer graphics.
I enjoy travelling because I love to see and get to know new things and interesting people. I also love long journeys because they give me time to think. I don’t like feelings like dissappointment, sadness, pain or fear, but they can inspire me in many ways, in many cases, these experiences can give special depth to a piece.
I like to draw in the traditional way, putting down my ideas on paper. I like traditional tools and materials like paper, pencil, ink or paint. I enjoy choosing between different kinds of paper with different thickness and texture, I enjoy comparing the various tones of white paper. I just love clean paper, love to imagine what will be created on the paper, and to draw the first line. Also, blank paper or a blank canvas inspires me. There is always the possibility in the blank, empty surface for something to be expressed that has never been expressed before.
