"I paint basically from personal experience, from images, colors and shapes that have impressed me the most. In other words, purely visual stimulation which I feel impelled to express and materialize on the canvas.
You could call it "painting for the absolute sake of painting", simply the sheer urge of aesthetic expression: Art for the sake of art!"
