In your works are presented world icons such as Karl Lagerfeld, the Queen, Rita Ora and many more. What do they symbolize for you?
The aspect of celebrity culture and brand iconography is fascinating to me. It all comes down to the philosophy of worship, which I believe is a psychological requirement for humanity to survive. In ancient times, civilisations were moulded and manipulated by religion and myths. But these ideas have been displaced. Celebrities and brands are the new gods. And with their power a new world is being created. Amongst other aesthetics I use this theme of worship as a central tenant of my work.
Do you feel that you will be able to influence the society in the future in the same way as people from your art works?
The artwork I create of icons is an unbiased observation of whom I see inflicting change on the world and not a reflection of my personal aspirations. Speaking of my work as a whole, if it influences or inspires people that is great. My art is my passion and it’s never bad to receive appreciation.
Do you believe in karma?
I just believe in life. Feelings are just biological reactions that happen in the body. What is bad to a human could feel completely different to another living organism. For that reason I question this notion.
Which work do you relate the most to (from your own collection and you can describe it)?
All my artworks are manifestations of ideas that come for the same place in my mind, so I relate to them equally when I create them. Once they are done, I detach myself and move onto the next idea.
