“Painting is my next world, right beside music.”
“Gel art combines modern extravagance with convulsive classic. Both of them are very close to each other.”
“Gel-art enables the creation of a very precise compositions, offers unusual colors, materializes glittery effects and gives magnificent pastel colors such as green, violet and pink. So: Long live great differences! So, let’s go along the way next to Dante’s Alighieri:
»FORSAKE ALL ARROGANCE AND SELFISHNESS. LET’S CREATE HARMONY AND BEAUTY.«”
