BIOGRAPHY

I do not remember my first drawing or the day when my artistic skill became apparent, just as no one can recall their first word or when they learned to read. Art came naturally to me; but when the time came to choose a subject at university, I switched off my heart and chose with my head. I chose architecture because my parents were architects and this is what I had been encouraged to study, and the artists I was surrounded by were very poor.

After studying for 4 years, my circumstances changed and I was no longer able to attend. I continued working in architecture, progressing to become a senior architect and studying my master’s degree in the evenings.

Despite everything seeming perfect something was missing, I had come to a crossroads in my life and needed to make an important decision:

 

continue with my successful career or to risk everything to become the person I wanted to be. Ignoring my fears and resisting my family’s influence, I quit my job and social life and moved back to my hometown.

When I returned, I sought out the artist Jurgen Nickel, who had created the first painting I had fallen in love with, aged 15. I took the opportunity to take painting classes taught by him immediately. Working in the studio of a poor yet fulfilled person that could be potentially selling their paintings for a fortune, grounded me.

I recognized that not everything is about money and that passion is more important; for the first time in a long period I felt truly happy, I realized that I can paint for myself and that I want to do art for the rest of my life no matter what. After two years of training, I traveled to another village to paint “en plein air”.

When I returned I was ready to start my own path. The most important lesson I learned during this time was being honest and open when expressing myself on canvas; to paint with my soul.

My goal

I would like to support scientific transhuman projects trying to find a cure for deadly diseases and extend healthspan by organizing exhibitions and attracting capital through them. I want to positively impact society such as raising awareness about science achievements in radical life extension with my art and art of other artists.
