themes

Life is the succession of events, silences and phases. Everything is constantly in motion, after hectic comes calm, after light comes darkness, after impressive comes simplicity. One is only expressed through the other and eventually all goes by and all is relative.
Topics in the drawings can be anything because they are all equally important or unimportant.
The moment in which something happens or nothing happens is drawn.
