Q: Could you describe the evolution of your pictorial style between byzantine icons and historical avant-garde?
A: I am not sure if it is possible to talk about ‘evolution’ in the style of my paintings. Apart from researching more sophisticated pictorial textures, technically speaking I have always been interested in bodies and portraits. Even today, I am loyal to my ‘first love’, the human figure. I keep interpreting it on one hand by taking inspiration from my cultural background (byzantine art and historical avant-garde); on the other, by everything I discover observing the world and the people surrounding me.
Q: Are you also inspired by other mediums to create your atmospheres and characters?
