  • My practice revolves around such thematics as social, environmental and political issues. I am interested in engaged art and activism, and am trying to produce artworks that have a big impact on the public, wether the shock, disturb or puzzle the viewers. I produce mainly figurative work with help of the traditional techniques of copper engraving, lithography and woodcut, using as predominant subject men, their interactions with each other, and their relationship to the environment.
