D) area d'azione (disegno, pittura, fotografia, animazione, ...) / your sphere of interests: All forms of art have an impact on me. Concerning my work it is mainly drawing but in this context I work across different mediums - a drawing can sometimes turn into a sculpture or a moving image.
E) studi / studies: I studied at Weissensee school of art Berlin and Academy of Visual Arts in
F) qualcos'altro dal tuo curriculum / could you please tell us a little bit about what do you do/have you done?:Drawing is a medium to explore the world and make my position visible. Upon finishing my diploma almost two years ago, I began to exhibit my work and started to draw on large formats, which is very new and challenging. It also interests me how to establish a relationship between the drawings and the exhibiting site. In parallel I work on commissions for cultural institutions, magazines and in collaboration with other artists in print, film, fashion design etc. This collaborative work helps enhance my individual activities. I don't distinguish between illustration and fine art and I feel this gives me a lot of freedom.
