Painter/Graphic Designer

Art has always been a big part in my life. Since I was a little kid, I was obsessed with colors and I started associating the days of the week, and numbers to them. In my mind, each person of my family was represented by their favorite color. Later, I learnt that this is called Synesthesia. I tend to associate things with colors, as my mind perceives them that way.

My family and I moved a lot, which in a sense I feel like it made me grow up more as an artist as I was exposed to new people all the time with very different concepts of art. However, with all these experiences I learnt that the thing that really attracts me to art are feelings. How a piece of art can produce a strong feeling or emotion on a person truly fascinates me. With my art, I hope I can move people, I hope I am able to make people feel something, because in the end, feelings are part of the essence of being human.
