The invisible words written under the surface of the throne, evoke the continuous struggle for power; the intrinsic need to overcome and replace what is – with what will be. That native state of the universe, which starts from the subatomic level to the macrocosm.
The throne, symbol of the distorted perception of high positions, of dictators, pure white object, with outstretched wings. The symbol of the dream of power contrasts with the reality of the atrocious uncomfortable, disproportionate and divided sitting, with a red oversized cushion made out of silicone, with symbolic outstretched fist marks emerging out of the volumes
Representing a radical experimentation of materials and forms; the work was largely fueled by a”primitive” form, the rock. A natural inspiration formed a unique contrast to the humanly fabricated roman column, resulting in a distinctive blend of modernity and timelessness.
The column style provide space to a totally different interpretation: man’s longing and yearning for the spiritual and divine, the manipulation of reality embarking to a dream place.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
In the current context focused on excessive and unsustainable consumerism, the 21st Century welcomes us with a Darwinian transformation for both men and nature. Evolution which leads to the development of a synthetic man living in a synthetic nature. Heavy topics as regeneration and sustainable environment are thrown into the arms of the future generations, that have not been born yet.
Thus, the artist’s creations highlight the synthesis through alternative materials used, such as: synthetic marble (resin and marble dust), synthetic resin (Plexiglass), synthetic cement (Jesmonite), charcoal, wood, and so on. His works have a powerful conceptual plasticity but also physical plasticity, a concept that can be interpreted as modern works of the 21st Century.
His pieces are sold around the world, belonging to private collectors and royal families.
