Biography

My technique, my work are directly inspired by French Classicism (Poussin, Jacques Louis David, Ingres), artists of the Dutch Golden Age like Rembrandt and Vermeer as well as Manet, Lucian Freud, Picasso. In that way my paintings’ motivation is first of all a tribute to these artists and, by extension, to all the actors of Art History.
