My art is my revolution

ARTIST STATEMENT

Sustainable development, although being an empty signifier, holds one important aspect for me, which surpasses everything else. It is an idea born out of a problem that impacts, and has to be addressed by, every single person on this planet. It truly is a global problem that transcends language boundaries, national borders or cultural differences. It binds us all into one. Art has always been my way of expressing myself. I have painted since the day I could hold up a pen. As such, after my studies, I decided to address this subject by the means I could best communicate it in. I moved to Sweden and started to take a variety of themes within sustainable development and express them in my way on a canvas. I want my art to lead to a positive social change. Art can touch an individual on a deeply personal level, and so I try to take these subjects and bring them into people’s hearts. My art is abstract which allows a viewer tremendous freedom to see their own reflection within it, to make it their own. But the theme of the paintings revolve around sustainable development. My art is my revolution.
