2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

often minimal, but always expressive with a knack for the twist.

3. What is your favourite medium and why?

my favorite medium is black ink on different surfaces like paper, glass, foil, ceramics.


first, because working non-digitally the body is more involved into the process regarding sound, smell or touch.
it’s also easier to extend the spatial physical movements like gestures compared to the very restricted motions in front of a screen.

second, for my imagineering purposes the computer is a fast precision tool for any needs for calculation.
beside this accuracy machine, pen, ink & paper are unbeatably fast in creating spontaneous expressions or
visualizing/communicating ideas.

my workflow collages contemporary 3D/CG imagineering with dirty hands-on drawing,
I am eager to make a smooth transition from excessive ink drawings to flowing, organic, often experimental CGI creations.
