In my youth I loved Otto Dix, the late works of Lovis Corinth and also William Turner. During my scholastics I descry the abstract expressionism with artist like Pollock and de Kooning and quite sure the great painters of the Italian Renaissance. But the most influence was and is my own life.

q)What inspires you to create?
