In my paintings, I show people who are alone, even in the middle of the city. They are isolated, lost in their own thoughts or walking away from the viewer; I also reveal the emptiness of the streets and subway platforms where they are. I use strong colors and clean lines to give each painting a simplicity that both makes us feel the silence of city life and creates its own inner beauty.
