I believe that our experiences are based on overlooked dynamics. Almost all our contemporary life now is rooted in politics, which is why I often ponder the mechanisms behind power relations, whether with the authorities or in everyday life. However, the invisible hand of power is only protruded when conflicts arise. Therefore, my key approach is to create contradictions and capture them in my images.

Stressful and dark realities of politics may be beyond the reach of average citizens. However, despite the shortcomings of the system, I believe harsh criticism and cynicism to be ineffective in addressing such failings. I hope that the humorous touch with paradoxical playfulness in my works not only bring attention to political issues, but moreover, relieve some of the frustrations felt towards the system’s failings.
