Since I started painting on a regular basis from the age of eight years, I experimented a lot and went threw many many different styles and periods, digesting art history and going deeper and deeper what I call a transformative process. So I experience and see "Art" as an alchemical process of transformation and not only as an end-result and "aim" or "product". This is particularly important to me because I see the danger of humanity sinking down in a materialistic worldview with the help of financial speculation. Creating Art is a very deep and long process and needs everything in order to be realized. Nowadays people want to have everything fast and immediately. So, oil-painting keeps rooted and forced to a work-rhythm which feels just more natural and alive to me.
