I emerged as an artist with influence from various sources. After post- graduation, I copied and learned the technique and style of cubism and used this style for a while using analytical vision based on fragmentation and multiple viewpoints. While Dadaism taught me to reject the aesthetic standards by aiming to create anti-art, employing a sense of absurd. Fauvist, adopted a style, painted in a spontaneous manner, using bold colours. Photo-realism or super-realism movement emerged in the United States and Britain portraying an extremely detailed and exacting style. One source of my inspiration and influence was the Pop Art. It opened my eyes to a wider vision of the world, where mass media, advertising and popular culture mingled with history, be it films, politics or soup cans. A fusion of all this influences resulted in the culmination of my style "Warhol and the history of art".

It has been a wonderful experience as an artist. The members of Mojarto.com are very kind and always helpful. They strive for publicity of every artist with same dedication, be them an amateur or professional. The transactions are always clear and without any hassles. I am proud to be a part of Mojarto.com community.
