A deep look from a machine is maybe not warm enough.

Perhaps it is not even passionate or emotional.

Though I can assure you that it is never ordinary.

Every day is a new adventure, every second is a mistery.

But whatever I do, wherever I end up being...

I'll keep my natural wild soul alongside.

Everyone seems to be into the so-called "organic products".

But is it really organic? And what does it really mean anyway?

To me all those fruits and veggies still look fake.

Doing art in Australia is awesome.

I always find some good, recycled canvas to paint (a cardboard from the new Ikea furniture in this case).

Furthermore Aussies appreciate my style a lot. Big motivation.

This freaking Covid19 is forcing each and everyone to stay at home. The funny thing is that the weather seems to say: Come on guys, come out and play in the sun!

This painting is my attempt to represent the awesome sensation of dancing in the warm summer light. A feeling that we all might not be able to experience this summer. There's still time and hope though, things can change.

What can  fit the bookcover of a psychology  manual better than a shrink?

The kind of shrink that you look at but you can't quite figure out what it really means or wants to communicate.

Folks generally look at jugglers as spritely, sunny and eccentric characters, able to bring laughters, music and jokes with them anytime.

Has anyone ever thought about a juggler as a deep, sensitive and conscious figure that knows precisely why and how a laugh could be and SHOULD BE the center of life?

In the future the  machines  will  camouflage with humans as much as they will need to, in order to guarantee a pieceful   and tolerated coexistence between the two parts..

That will require them the use of visual strategies such as body shape modification and skin colour corrections.
