Statement

Being an agent on the battleground of paintings’ history might be less dirty than his canvases, since hijacking in these deposits is a foundation of art. However his distinct mission is the disentanglement of appropriations for the disorientation of myths behind cultural and national identity, stabilized in the spirit of expressionism. His work is not adding ​difference​ to that story, it is stressing the ties between obedience and resistance.
