My art practice is dynamic and fluid. It has a social aspect and is based upon my preference to work from an editorial and research based practice. I’m operating in the fields of graphic design and visual arts since 2003 and collaborated with a lot of people throughout the years. Collaborations are always my preference.In my practice I regard communication as an experiment. I consider art, journalism and social fiction key factors in the process of generating both concepts for commission-related and self-initiated projects. 

I’m interested in the different layers and perspectives of reality in our society — and the way we relate ourselves to that. My work varies from photo works to video installations to print, collage and drawing and organising public events and connecting people.

Cultural Event Organiser — Regularly I organise cultural events in my hometown to stimulate and promote the art scene. I also work for other artists and cultural institutions where I’m responsible for organising and managing artistic/cultural projects from the beginning throughout the end. I think along  conceptually and practically with a hands on mentality. Feel free to contact me for more information.
