"I gather data from reference images, videos, Google Earth, climate information, culture, or architecture of the area. If there is a movie in the region or local music that can help a better understanding, I will immerse myself in that."
"I knew I wanted to do something unusual from the start. When I started brainstorming - going through orchestras, concerts and instruments – I eventually landed on the unique aesthetic of Rammstein concerts."
"I am a fan of minimalism, not only in terms of visual design but as a lifestyle choice. Not strict minimalism, ascetic sense, but what I call soft, warm minimalism. Simplicity, and honest, natural materials."
"Africa is home to such rich and diverse aesthetics, it’s really fascinating. With 54 countries in one continent and even more cultures, there are so many different and unique visual styles to be discovered!"
"A bedroom is a place where you relax, so I wanted to visualize a corner that highlights this subtle coziness. It is the part of the room where you would sit back and enjoy the sun rays on a lazy Sunday afternoon."
"This space was to neither fully belong to the real world nor to the unreal but to exist in balance. Interiors should evoke the full range of emotions, including those commonly considered undesirable"
"To live up to the name of ‘White Garden’: our goal was to make the restaurant-goers feel surrounded by nature in every square inch. Blend natural and light colors, so shades of browns complement the vegetation"
"For my take on the Scandinavian style, I chose to try new fabric materials and lighting scenarios, resulting in a warm mood. It was not an easy task both technically and emotionally, as it was dedicated as a heartfelt and special gift."
"For an introverted person, a significant part of life happens internally, and my goal was to show a glimpse of my mind in the form of a room. 'Quiet Place' is a personal project in the most literal sense."
"When people grow tired of clutter, they need simple, understandable and convenient forms. Natural shapes and textures are able to provide calm from the constant hustle and bustle of the modern world."
“Photorealism has the power to challenge our perception, you can make people believe anything as long as it seems real. You can also subvert these expectations, introducing elements that do not belong in our world, it is quite literally magic!"
“The Beatles were a big part of my childhood, I heard them on the radio all the time. I have a broad, yet eclectic taste in music, but Rock will always be my favorite. Yeah, I love rock 'n' roll!"
