I create art under different identities to satisfy my urge to express my ever evolving personality.
An identity might represent a remarkable period, an adventure, event, illness, a spiritual journey or a significant change. Other than entertaining myself, becoming a new identity every once in a while refreshes my point of view and fuels my inspiration with new blood.
My artistic evolution is actually structured around these identities.
When I look back at my life in the past 18 years, I see and remember the sequence of identities, not the calendar years.
I began painting in 1995, and since adopting my first imaginary identity in 1999, I have created art under 33 identities.
How it all began? Why did I invent each identity?
Below you will find a list of my identities, the result of my reasonable efforts to be inclusive and chronological. I’m not done yet and will update the links whenever there is a new story.
Clicking on a name will open the related post that tells the story behind that identity.
