Statement

Modern reason has created barriers for elegant art. Art lacks the opportunity to communicate with the general public outside the elite. That’s how everything started, I want to talk to the audience directly in a unique language - Jewellery. I see my work as a sharp knife, a knife that cuts the society. what is inside the society? what is surrounding us? I am not a butcher, but I am more like an anatomist who is thirsty for the truth. As an artist, every piece of my work is a question I asked. Every thought of me is a process of refracting the outside world.
