Save THIS planet

Artist’s statement

Personally, painting allows me to express feelings, feelings that churn deep inside, feelings that are waiting, to open up to the light of day, to be born. My ethnic and geographic origins made me nomadic, cosmopolitan, a citizen of everyplace.
Through my wanderings, in my desire to observe everything, to absorb everything, abhorring the exclusion of the wretched people of this earth, the people who roam the planet, equalized by their suffering. The headlines of so many nations’ newspapers expressing, in different languages, the same sad news, the silent and dense agony of nature, struggling to survive.
Interpreting colours and shadows, figurative or landscape, images and sensations that pain, touch, mobilize me in order to express my protest against the suffering of the so many who don’t have a voice to be heard: against the destruction of nature’s resources, who don’t have hands, brush and canvas to portray their slow and painful death.
That is what needs to be done, needs to be done in order not to perish. Τhat is my way of shouting to people to reflect, my way of contributing towards construction of a more just world, more solid, more beautiful, more gentle, more human.
