In his own words:
The state of chaos and complex formations that the universe is in are the sole impulses that trigger the act of making art. This chaotic structure which shapes my outlook on the world, keeps ordinary life above my perception limit. While the dynamism in the chaos becomes consistent throughout the creative process, sometimes it is also dragged into the quest of truth. It descends down to the finest detail that is visible and enables me to mediate its transformation into some space that is external to its own reality. I evaluate the concept of chaos usually with the figures through which the psychological stress of man can be expressed. Because the complexity of human figure gives reference to the starting point of chaos, and it also raises the question of the origin of the confusion. And my style of painting, which progresses with a consistent perspective with regard to the used language, contains experiments that avoids from recurrence of the plastic elements. This attitude, compels me to determine the appropriate medium and the compositions for the subject that is defined by my own cognitive limitations.
