My #china project was inspired by a trip to China I did in 2013. Walking the streets at night, I was impressed by how rich the colors were. I was born and raised in a city and for that reason cities have always been a great source of inspiration for my art. The neon signs, by most regarded as trashy and tawdry, i would see as an extraordinary mosaic of different colors and shapes. A mosaic you cannot experience in this shape in any european city. With my paintings I want to share chinese cities` unusual beauty and unique charm.
