Artist Statement


Every artist approaches their work in a different way. I like to think that my creations are born from a process of creating music that can be seen. I start with an empty and silent stage of white canvas. Then, I gradually introduce and bring to the stage my brushes using them as musical instruments that produce the colors, texture, rhythm and harmony. The process is finished when I hear visual harmony coming from my painting.
With a background in still life and landscape painting, I have discovered that I feel true artistic freedom when creating non-objective abstract painting. Now I enjoy the playful dancing back and forth across the boundary lines between representational forms and abstract.

Bio:


I have been drawing, painting and working with images whole my life. After more than twenty years working as a specialist in Image Processing and Computer Graphics, I decided to exploit my artistic creativity in full capacity in the field of art. My formal education in Image Processing has been of great benefit to my work as an artist via the use and deep understanding of color and image attributes. In the art field I have also been tutored by several accomplished artists.
A new chapter in my life began when I moved to Canada with my wife and two sons in 2002. In recent years, I have extensively worked on textured abstract figurative, landscape and cityscape. I live in Burlington, Ontario.

Technique:


I create paintings by building up layers of texture and colors. I am greatly interested in treatment of textural surfaces combined with glazing techniques that brings rich texture and vibrant colors to my work. I work primarily in acrylic on canvas somewhere between representational forms and abstract. My work can best be described as contemporary abstract landscape and cityscape painting with extended treatment of textural surfaces. The bold colors and deep texture in underlayers are used to express nature of urban and natural world. The dominant stream of my work is abstract art of houses, paintings of houses, that my customers call "Happy houses".
