Artist’s statement

How can we reconcile the destructive nature of humanity and the state of urban decay? Although cities constantly expand and develop, many areas are forgotten and left to deteriorate. My work explores and challenges our perception of architectural beauty and worth. It aims to convey the need to adjust our perceptions of beauty and learn to value and celebrate the uniqueness of each moment.

Influencing artists: Banksy, William Kentridge, Anselm Kiefer, Arthur McIntyre, Kurt Schwitters, Varvara Stepanova
