His work explores the relationship of the self with the environment and the expression of this process through the creation of personal narratives in the form of image, installation and performance. He is concerned with the analysis of essential human desires and their articulation as characters or ideas as part of a distinct discourse guided by his perception of lived experiences. “My work is as grotesque as my understanding of the world allows it to be, an endless pit of discoveries and twists “.
