Artistic approach

I use an ancient casting technique called "lost wax" to create my sculptures. My sculptures combine surrealistic, grotesque and fairy-tale elements, inspired by artists such as Henry Moore and Salvador Dali.
I combine ordinary objects, whose uncommon context creates magical weavings and metaphors, presenting animals and people in unusual situations.
My sculptures are deeply impregnated with hidden meanings, secrets and subtexts.
These elements serve to show the complexity of the human condition, its ambitions, limitations, advantages and disadvantages.
I have a desire to spark the imagination of the audience and give them something to think about.
« Man's most important mission on Earth is to saturate everything with a spiritual element ». - Salvador Dali (The Journal of a Genius).
Every time I begin work on a new sculpture, I have the curiosity of a child who can't wait to finish the experiment.
My sculptures appeal to a sensitive public who want to contemplate the metaphysical world of the imagination.
