Artist Statement

I have never been interested in Art, Museum was boring, Painting was useless... I was only focused on Skateboarding and Surfing.


After 10 years as a trader in the financial markets, I had a sport accident and since that date I have been living in a wheelchair, quadriplegic. It was a new beginning, a reset.


I couldn't continue my past life, I had to invent a new one. The gift I received was Time... Time to learn, time to discover, time to visit and finally time to understand Art.


The need to express emotions and feelings was growing and now painting is becoming a big part of my life.
