Abstract Figurative Surrealist Contemporary

"By using elements such as chairs, ladders, beds, monocycles, trapeze artists, swings, machines... it is a way of telling stories about life. The chairs signify, according to the context, opportunities and the patience required for them to step into our lives. The ladders represent our desire to climb, to continue our personal growth. Beds represent periods when we sleep and dream."
