My Watercolor Showcase



A Visual Translator

My artistic practice is continuously developing a vision in order to interpret ordinary subjects into an authentic piece of art. My inspiration is urban life, city architecture and the nature. I experiment with harmonic juxtaposition of values, colors and reference subjects. Even though I pay attention to technical planning, I believe that the uniqueness of a painting comes from the calligraphic marks and brushstrokes. I consider myself still in an evolving phase that I would acquire a unique style and character based on my calligraphic prints. 

I stay mostly on the realistic side, where I lean to abstraction from time to time for giving realistic impressions.


Color is only beautiful when it means something
