Artist & Filmmaker.

Statement

My approach to work is simple: if something interests me, I take it under my wing in order to learn from it and develop it further. It's kind of like the story of Pokémon, where the guy walks around all day looking for new creatures to befriend and take care of. My creatures are ideas. Sometimes wild, sometimes tame.

After studying art for a few years, I still can't say what art is, and that's fine. For me it has something to do with applied philosophy.
