“My works are not preconceived, they are a challenge, since I don’t’ know what will emerge from the canvas. As the handwriting of a teenager changes with time, thus changes the color as it is applied, retaining only the idea of color. The shades from the diverse colors start invading the canvas or paper, and start turning into something subjective; it’s the artist’s ultimate moment, when, aside from technique, feels he’s creating something his own. And almost unconsciously, the artist knows when he has reached the final stage of his work, and declares it finished.
