I make a modern figurative sculpture. In this case figurative means telling a story, representative.
Form and movement in my sculptures are means to conveying an inner state but intended to give a positive feelings to a person.
This is a visual metaphor that I am working on to make our environment better.
The goal is to bring something pure personal as an artist, basing on great examples and persistantly improoving a quality.
That's what I am doing while working on my own compositions and forms.
