“My paintings are reflections of human nature, the creation of the universe, our environment, and today’s society.”
My paintings are reflections of human nature, the creation of the universe, our environment, and today’s society. Born in 1969 in Liechtenstein, where I currently live and work, I have developed a painting process that allows me to channel both my empirical and intellectual persuasions on to the canvas. By a surrealistic method I first create chaos on the canvas, until I arrive at a point where I detect forms and shapes in the painting, which speak to me. I then consciously work and refine those forms and shapes and mold them into an organized composition. I create order in the chaos. I studied Fine Art Painting at the San Francisco Art Institute in the mid 90’s. Since then, I have exhibited in America, China, Germany, Liechtenstein, Spain, and Switzerland.
