I take photos of daily life in Berlin and then paint the images as a way of exploring and better understanding the spaces that surround me. It helps me break down big, abstract concepts like Berlin, Germany, and Germans into smaller, more accessible fragments, helping me, further, to cope with the move from my homeland to a new, unknown country.

We don’t believe you have to call yourself an “artist” in order to make art. For us, art is an expression of internal feelings, articulated as visual forms (or externalized into visual forms). We try to pursue a practice unmediated by preconceptions of what “good” or “bad,” or what we should or shouldn’t do, preferencing our direct, personal experiences of the world to guide our process.
