“My artistic style is something I like to call dream realism. The way I see the world is … I see the world in color, I see interesting compositions wherever I go. My mind always works as if I were photographing, even if” I’m not actually taking the picture. So my art is basically me trying to introduce that dream landscape, that world in my head, that imagination, I try to bring it to reality “.

But I also realize that with something like photography you can’t make it. unrealistic, it will seem false, so I want my art to be based on realism. “
