He has participated in many editions of the “Onufri”, International Art Competition.That’s how he describes his artwork: “Often the dilemma tantaliazing the artist in front of a plane keeps me stuck in the emotional memory that I have in use. Everything translates into sensation from the instinct of reading the plane any time I have it before me. This travelling memory mingles —with the testimonies of matter with conquered visual tension”.
