STATEMENT

 

The Duckies, unwilling heroes of my artworks, live in their inactive, symbolic and still world, full of aspirations and ironies, between differences and amputations.

Projected in an imaginary state, they loose themselves in the emotionality, recover in the irony, materialize in the symbol.

My work investigates the themes of tension and diversity as a source of positive peculiarity and unicity.

My favourite mediums are acrylic colors and graphite.
