Some critics have tried to classify me as a surrealist, but I don't consider myself as such (...) In fact, I don't know if my paintings are surreal or not, but I know that they are the most honest expression of myself (...) I hate surrealism. It seems to me to be a decadent manifestation of bourgeois art. A deviation from the true art that people hope to receive from the artist (...) I would like my painting and myself to be worthy of the people to whom I belong and the ideas that give me strength (...) I would like my work to contribute to the struggle for peace and freedom...

You deserve a love that wants to dance with you, that finds paradise every time it looks into your eyes, that never misses reading your expressions.

-----------------------------------

You deserve a love that would sweep away lies and bring you dreams, coffee and poetry.

-----------------------------------

To create your own paradise, you have to draw from your personal hell.

-----------------------------------

So I will be friends with those who love me as I am.
