As an artist, I depict the daily life of men in society. A spokesperson for bonds and emotions that humans manifest through their various influences. My attitude lies in bringing the world together thus making it more social. With the evolution of individualism around the world, I wonder about the causes of this alarming phenomenon. As well as the means to remedy it. It starts to be more attentive to the actions and gestures of men. However, all of my work reflects the lived and the emotions of the people around it and other facts of society that it translates.
Plastically employing lines which have very special importance to me. I use the lines as a revealer of concealed things that exists in an invisible form and which also designates the different areas of influence. And the state of mind of each individual: either love, friendship, hate, or hostility.
