“Since my youth, I have been passionate about art which I found was a balance to my interests in more pragmatic subjects, such as maths and science. This very much reflects my personality which also explains my profession as an architect; a profession that is both regimented and boundless. Art gives me the control to break rules and paint by instinct.
Painting is my chosen medium, but I am equally fascinated by sculpture and find inspiration in works by Rodin and Michelangelo. I especially admire the manner in which Rodin seemingly left some of his pieces unfinished or rough around the edges to better express movement and life. This is a style I also enjoy in paintings, best exemplified by Turner, an artist whose use of light and tone I feel has greatly affected me in my personal and artistic capacity.”
