All sleepless nights devoted to sequencing and editing,…

Exhibiting @TheOtherArtFair

It is very nice when somebody comes to your exhibition. It is particularly nice when the interest is shown by the younger generation of viewers. They are not corrupted by the conventions of ‘good taste’ or art history and spontaneously express their excitement or curiosity when seeing a work of art. At the Other Art…

Magical Realism @TheOtherArtFair

Exciting news! I will be exhibiting my ‘Magical Realism’ series, the ‘Ecosystems’ series and possibly even several paintings at The Other Art Fair in Bristol (http://bristol.theotherartfair.com/), happening 26-29 July 2018.

Street life @rencontresarles

What is peculiar about Arles is that you never know what you are going to see. A few meters off course and you are embraced by a lively celebration of an exhibition you have never heard anything about. You meet the artists, curators, the press and relive the experience through their perspectives and explanations. I…

Notes from @rencontresarles ‏

It has already become a tradition for me to make some images exploring the photographic life of Arles during the Rencontres photo festival. I will be returning to this idea in several future posts. Sincerely hoping that the images will speak louder than words. What attracts me in these scenes is the immediacy of life,…

Rephotography @TheOtherArtFair

Rephotography is an interesting concept. Images photographed, presented in physical form and then rephotographed take on a life of their own. Thus, my ‘Magical Realism’ piece that was recently shown at INDEX in Dubai will be presented at the Other Art Fair in Bristol, 26-29 July 2018: http://bristol.theotherartfair.com/ alongside many other works. Additional layers, including…
