My paintings are a personal declaration aimed at ameliorating our modernity. When I paint, I compose visual anthropological essays that bridge the past and present for a contemporary acculturation. The colors and symbols I use are adopted from many stations, ranging from folk traditions to street art. Further manipulation recontextualizes them as both graphic ornament and Esperanto. Initially, these paintings were organized according to open-source graphs describing patterns of social human interaction. They have become a way for me to filter the urgency and collective scramble of contemporary life.
