My work reveals an extremely festive and deeply serious emotion at the same time which can be named as a serious ceremony or magnificent ritual. I use synthetic colors, unusual and imaginative childish figures, cheap party supplies and plastic materials.

I work in painting and installation. Painting is more about the visualization of my own imaginative world, while my installation is about the physical experience of my painting.

The MFA Fine Arts program reflects the diversity of New York’s many art worlds. Together, the faculty and students form a community of established and emerging artists from many backgrounds who work across disciplines and modes of practice. Our main goals are to provide a stimulating and supportive environment in which students can thrive and develop as artists, to foster rigorous critical engagement with contemporary art and other cultural forms, and to produce an ongoing conversation, through work as much as through words, about what we make, how we make it and why.

The MFA Fine Arts program attracts ambitious emerging artists from many countries and backgrounds. In their commitment to art, and to one another, they provide a foundation for artistic growth that extends beyond graduation and forms an ongoing platform of professional support.
