I try to express, through my art, complex and multi-dimensional events of life in response to my own experiences. Some are visual, while others are heard and felt rather than seen. Nevertheless, all can be expressed through the visual art language I use, I called ‘Klekti’ (collective emotions). ‘Klekti’ allows me to express a collective set of emotions in a single painting.
