Generally, as an artist, I have found inspiration in music and old movies. Music has always played an important role in my life. I have often found inspiration in naming my artworks after poems. Particularly, I have been drawn to the works of Wim Wenders and David Lynch. I find the beauty in their visual expression. I like abandoned places and old objects. They give me stories about people and places I have been along my own way. My artworks are in many ways like flashbacks.
