Incredible paper collages that look like oil paintings

He started out creating portraits of family and friends, but he’s now working on a series called Rumination. He said: “Rumination is similar to worry except it focuses on bad feelings and experiences from the past. I try to show a man struggling with their weaknesses, loneliness, alcohol, stimulants, the man who meditates on the meaning of existence. The heroes of my paintings often wear masks. They are a symbol of thought, passing through life. In my work I try to encourage the viewer to think about what is really important in life.”

Another ongoing series is called Pyramids. He added: “The heroes of these paintings are in the ordinary moments of life. We have a potter, librarian, seller, traveller, painter… The basic element of these paintings is a pyramid head. White and black. In each of us there are good emotions and bad emotions, good and evil. I try to show that we are all somewhat alike. We are all humans. It depends on us what we do with our lives. What path we choose. When I was studying painting, my teacher forbade me to use black and white paint. This series is my rebound on those prohibitions.”
