We do not talk about love at all

Where do we come from, who are we, where do we go to? In my work I address the issues of the world around me. I try to reflect my own struggles with today’s reality as well as man’s in general. We all want love, attention, acceptance and understanding, but when it comes to a meeting of two people, it turns out that we do not know how to talk to each other, we do not know how to listen, how to express feelings. Through my art, I would like to draw people’s attention to here and now, so that they started talking about love in the world of violence, alienation, and exaggerated ego.
