Writing and painting have always been sources and tools of pure joy and freedom for me. The sign, its expressive and creative power have always intrigued and fascinated me. In developing the sign, the signifier and its multiple possible meanings, I became passionate about our beautiful language, and I became a journalist, a writer, a cartoonist, a painter.
If I had to give an indication of my painting, I could perhaps define it as an "evasionist": art is a journey of the soul outside the walls of our rational mind, it allows it to cross the darkness and expand into the light, to immerse yourself in the depths of itself, to then soar and free itself in the Soul of the World.
The Greek poet Nikos Kazantzakis wrote: "You have the brush, you have the colours, you paint Heaven and then enter it". To those who look at my paintings, I would just like to suggest: drop everything, even if only for a moment, take a deep breath ... and travel with me.
