I never ever considered painting to be a valid life path for me. I’ve always wanted to paint, but even the thought was overwhelming, not to mention I didn’t think I had any talent. One day this all changed out of the blue. I just had this uncontrollable urge to paint. Living in a small village in Transylvania, I didn’t have many options to choose from at a moments notice, so I got myself some bad quality kids’ paint and paper. The paint was barely usable, but I was happy. It was like defragmenting my mind and I quickly became addicted. That’s how it all started. I never had any formal art training, I’m a video editor and singer, but I tried to learn by myself as much as I can.
Dotting is like therapy for me. The colors, textures, the rules – and the absence of rules – create an environment where my mind can get some untangled relief. Time and life itself flows without confusing obstructions and I can get a much needed rest before returning to the usual chaos of the world.
This is how I see the world I guess. Existence is weird and confusing, it has so many small bits, that seemingly have nothing to do with the big picture, but if I keep focusing on doing my best when it comes to the small pieces, it all comes together.
