I have developed this unique concept, Urban Way, to share the deversity of my culture with the rest of the World. During my performances, accompanied by live music, I paint some part of my body, face and hands as expression of Tolerance.
I came into contact with the subject at a very early age, and the artistic process gives me this force of conviction, this feeling of invincibility and the inner peace I seek. I’m like the pages of an open book blown by the winds of liberty. But I do not seek to make sense of my art because, to me, art is like life: if we look closely there is no sense, just emotion. That is what I wish to convey. Being a person who has suffered intolerance and persecution, I would have liked to stop being a victim and live like anyone else. But the past reminds me of who I am: an outsider. That is why my philosophy of including certain parts of my body in my art – namely my hands and face – to convey my emotions is for me therapeutic.
