Artist Statement

In my artwork, I express myself through different media, mostly painting, drawing, and video. Surreal and figurative in style, sometimes on the verge of science-fiction, my works are socially engaged criticizing various contemporary phenomena. In my last few projects focus is on social issues, including class and gender injustice, human and animal exploitation, crisis and pandemic, ecology, and genetic engineering. Heroes in my art are often victims of the repressive system and deeply disturbing human relations. The focus of my last three cycles is posthumanism, centering on human chimeras, people genetically interbreed with animals. Blurring the line between natural and artificial, these transgenic creatures question humanity itself.
