hi there!

Oh, what a wonderful surprise!
How swell of you to stop by!

Make yourself at home and have a look around – I’m sure you will find what you are looking for.

About me

Popular culture is my television. My art represents what I have seen so far.
I was looking for a way to express myself concerning today's materialism and individualism.
I was very interested in the whole customisation phenomenon; how you can get anything done just for you. What does it tell about people's self image today if even your credit card can't look like your neighbours one? When we surround ourselves with things that are and look just the way we want them to, what does it mean? Do we think that by that we can somehow exist more? To be what we individually are, even more? Is it a new way to use power and control on other people? It's easy to get expensive stuff. It's not enough anymore when you want to upgrade your status. . The consumer society and the social media demand us to make our identities and personas tangible - to give them a material form. Something you can see and even touch. Today a new competition has started - You have to know who you are and what you want.
And you have to do it better, bigger and faster than anyone else.
