I was born in a city that is full of changes, rebellious feelings, confronting attitudes and aspirations to express the freedom in the very individual way. The lifestyle and attitude of Berlin inspires me every day and shapes my visual aesthetics. I love the mystery of the city, shady streets, sometimes very grey skies that merge together with the colour palette of the buildings and the whole architecture. Berlin is extremely urban and sometimes has a melancholic aspect which creates a dystopian society narrative.
