I’m trying to transform the history into something more amusing by using sarcasm and grotesque.
I am interested in topics where the boundaries between real and unreal are blurred. I create a new reality where history, future, the real and fantastic co-exist as a whole. It is based on my personal perspective of the world, my positive attitude and the sense of humor.
