Welcome to my website.

Click the "Gallery-button" below and you will find a selection of my works.

In a digitized reality people are talking about the painting’s death. I try to be true to painting as a genre and medium. With reference to the Middle East pictorial tradition and the European new-expressionism I have found painterly solutions that unite my palette with simple figure forms as the main constituents. My work includes subtle moods with secondary colours such as orange, green etc.

I am very concerned about colour, the sound in colour and denominations. Would like to give people a colour punch, likes to "play" with motives, telling stories. I often paint layer upon layer, like the painting to "move”, a little be - not to be.

Many of the works are extremely detailed, like to call them "close-ups".
