What inspired you to create the artworks you have made for The Ode To?

– The works are inspired by my daily workflow and are done in a very intuitive way.

Can you tell us about your background and how you came to be an artist?

– I never studied art or learned anything in that direction. Even as a small child, I was always drawn to painting and discovering the world of art with pen and paper. A little over 12 years ago I painted my first large format and from then on I was unstoppable. I've been living in Berlin for over 3 years now and had the opportunity to do my first small exhibition 1 1/2 ago. That was the starting point, I immediately gave up my fashion design studies, which is why I actually came to Berlin, I also quit my job and went all in on art. Since then I have been painting almost every day, been able to rent a large studio and now have the privilege of turning my passion into a profession.

How would you describe your art and aesthetics in three words?

– Fluent, smooth, intuitively
