When I was a medical student, I really enjoyed the study of the human being in all its sciences, anatomy, cellular, physics, chemistry, physiology,
embryology, psychology, pathology, psychiatry, observing surgeries, visiting research labs... a real curiosity animated me, it was like an extraordinary
journey into the living mechanisms of the body. So when I choose to go for what I really want to do in life, Art and Creating Art, I wanted to approach it
in a similar way, in all it aspects, except this time it was about the human soul. So I choose to act, to dance, to play music, to draw, to paint, to sculpt,
even to design props and costumes, aiming at the professional level often with success.
After taking some time off to reflect upon my journey, I realized that what I really want to do now with all that wealth of experiences is to express
Oracle of Life
in its richness, in its diversity and in the abundance of its creativity, sometimes with works in one particular art form, sometimes with
works embracing several art languages, with always the same profound desire to express what I call
The Oracle of Life.

Note: Any work created in that spirit will mention "The Oracle of Life" with an attached page to it.
