I graduated with Bachelor of Arts in painting from Hunter College, CUNY. Currently, I am living in New York city since 2004. During my spare time (when I am not painting) I enjoy travel to different places to capture the scenery or object that represent nature or abstraction in spontaneity way. Furthermore, it represents my self as an artist and my interaction with the objects that reveal its beauty in its own way through the lens as an extension of my own eye.
Similar to my photography work, my art works in painting and drawing are a reflection of my interest in non-objective representation of colors that illustrate nature, the vibrant and complex life of cities, and countries as habitats with different cultures and colorful influences.
I used acrylic, oil as a medium since it gives the immediate result of layering and vibrant colors and allows me to combine with other types of mediums. I have utilized the methods of layering and abstraction. These methods are used to present organic shapes as well as certain rigid structures. The illusion of certain rigid structures emerges and subsides through the depths of vibrant organic shapes. The use of acrylic and oil colors in order to capture swift gestures which convey continuous energy and spontaneity. The progression of color and style are rendering the state of mind or mood at times. They also announce the freedom of having intimate moments with a variety of colors without the inhibition that fears and doubts could have on the process.
I also incorporated different types of media such as paper and pumice stones into my paintings to enhance the textures. As in my drawings, the combination of collage, oil pastels, charcoals and comte are utilized to create complexity of colors and textures.
