THE ARTWORK

Paper: Arcoprint Milk 300g // 18 x 26 cm // Digital offset

“My works are the reflection of my daily life. I usually implement a lot of things that I read; see or what goes on in my life. In this print, I put a lot of elements that represent my life in the past month when I had a lot of personal conflicts. So you can see a screaming cock, a ramen, two coffee, a hot teapot, Affligem triple and some other things. All these things together are like a riddle and you need to have the right context to read it how it supposed to be.  

My work really evolved from the traditional still life/nature morte into hard lines and abstract backgrounds where a lot of things are going on. The subjects change and define what I visualize. I like to play with what people immediately see, implementing strange combinations of icons, animals and ordinary things to create unusual combinations. I like to trigger interaction between the artwork and the viewer; it should create an open conversation where there is no right or wrong because explanation and meaning are not given.”
