How did you make these? I start from a random idea that I sketch in my notebook or on any sheet of paper that I find, then I scan it and I go improvising with [Adobe] Illustrator. Many times I start only with abstract shapes and a specific color palette.
Why did you make these? I do it to feel myself, in some way, [be] realized as a human being. [It’s] also to channel the many thoughts that flood me and I do not know how to express them in any other way. I find satisfaction in a finished work.
What do people typically say about your work? People often tell me that they like the colors I use or the concepts I try to express. Many people also ask me where these ideas come from. I enjoy the free interpretation of the people.
