“if some of us are lucky and can have a good individual life, when we look at the total scene with the suffering of children, animals, nature, it is not difficult to see that we are living in a dystopia created with our incredible selfishness. So, I can’t stop drawing the stupidity, the rudeness, the terribleness, the poverty of the people and especially the torture against women. Yes, my works reflect a dark atmosphere that unfortunately is the reality of our time.”
