"My spiritual path has had a huge impact on my practice as an artist. The themes I work around are completely related to my studies. My practice involves painting, screen printing, digital printing, collage and video. My works may be grasped as a continues research of ethnology, pattern making, ornamentation, abstract art, pop culture and digital aesthetics, avoiding any final definition or a linear narrative, nor imposing any fixed idea or absolute conclusion. My interests and sources of inspiration varies from Eastern philosophies, occult beliefs, through art history, pop culture, to music, rave culture, the digital age, and more."
