Just as every artwork has a story to tell, every artwork bonds with someone more than others. The power of the message each artwork creates is different for everyone, which is its magic.
Siddharta is the story of the One who is seeking to find his life purpose and truth. He seeks it everywhere, learning it through different masters, trying out different life experiences to find out at the end that the truth is whithin himself, that he himself is his own purpose in life.
Siddharta also realises that he never stops learning, taking in openly from the world and from his own Soul.
It was 15 years ago that I first got to know what Japanese ink is and then I started to learn the technique of using it as a painting medium.
I have always been fascinated by the traditional Japanese ink, which comes in so many different colours. The most known is the black coloured one, which seems ever so easy to use but once one gets to know it, it becomes an elaborate and very meticulous tool for painting, just as its philosophy behind it.
One of my dearest and most powerful artwork series that I have created was the one I called “Cause and Effect”. The vision came from a time when I started to think more around the meaning of energies.
I realized from when I was painting that often the colours, textures and forms came together in a certain way on my canvas, depending on the way I felt in that moment. Sometimes the colours just flew smoothly and glided without resistance.
To do art, to create as my full time focus, life time goal was my ultimate dream ever since I was a child.
I knew in my heart what the main reason was for me to be there, in that moment, at that spot:
it was to do what I love most to do.
