groups: ‘Action Painting’, which puts the focus on the physical action involved in painting and
‘Color Field Painting’, which explores the effect of pure colors and textures on a canvas.

constantly expand and present in new ways. I produce distinctly different styles that seem to
have no relations to each other. They are all a part of me, created by my mind and
translated through colors to the canvas.

nationalities, I enjoy the diversity of different cultural
