"I don´t know what I am; I don´t know what I mean; I don´t know what and for whom I create; I know neither the sense nor the reason of the origin of my previous works´ meaning, although the meaning is often recycled. It matters to me (suspiciously) less and less, who will understand and what will the one understand of my works; this is also applied to myself, I am a stranger to myself. After fifteen-years of intense, professional work in the field of art, somewhere in Central Europe, I have lost any sort of coherent identity. I´m slowly and dubiously coming to a conclusion that this is not a negative fact, however, I don´t know what to do about it."

Title: Desire is suffering
The Digital medium is just another tool by which an artist can communicate meaning, concepts or simply just aesthetics. If lucky perhaps a little of all of these.

I cannot say about my pictures too much, they just occure to me, and i create them. most of them doesn't symbolize anything, the point is only the atmosphere, the feelings. my greatest idols are dave mckean, floria sigismondi, chris cunningham, hieronymus bosch, bradley grosh (http://www.gmunk.com), marc stricklin (http://www.brittle-bones.com) and trent reznor ( nine inch nails ). i want to do in design, what reznor does in music, but with a little bit more humour in it, something like marilyn manson.

Title: Untitled 3
Currently undertaking a Fine Arts degree at the University of Tasmania, Hobart
Major Graphic Design.
This work is centred around the construction of images based on architectural/urban forms. Working with structures my intentions were to create a false, like effect a confliction between whats real/unreal.
I have experimented with combining textural surfaces and flat planes, producing elements in each image to effectively work as one, yet at the same time - contradict.
