Artist Statement
Every artist is a product of his geographical origin. My creative roots belong to Macedonia, land steeped in an amalgam of blood, myth, the smell of crushed basil, decaying monasteries and the poetic musing of a breed of people which seem to be a product of some unfinished alchemical process.

The myth, then, is the foundation for my themes; a timeless chain connecting the past to the present coupled with a fascination with the sweet pain arising from being an artist thriving only in the cocoon called studio. This is the arena where my visions are endowed with precise structure and detail. All the rest is a theory, and theory is blind next to the visions.
