“My works are usually portraits of humans, animals and sometimes objects in realism with cubism style combined. Inspired by Pablo Picasso’s arts, I do my works in realism, however certain facial features are enlarged while others are minimized such as the right eye is larger than the left; ears are not parallel; feet are placed on shoulders, etc….
I do my portraits in unique figurations rather than painting them descriptively. I chose to apply cubist approach in order to capture different sides and different aspects of my subjects.
My subjects are usually my family and friends who are close to me. I consider my art as my “diary” of personal experiences.”
