My artbook, reinterpreting Dante A.’s Divine Comedy, was finished in 2006. In this work, my aim was to study and reinterpret the moral implications of Dante’s piece, as well as its visual phrasing in a way that is relevant to myself. This work has awoken the deep interest that has inspired me to gain a more thorough knowledge of the age of humanism. I have been profoundly influenced by the works of Eliade, and Nietzsche’s anti-religious views that Christianity has declared the core values ​​of spirituality as guilty, misleading, and tempting. The behavioral norms and expectations of the society of our times, as well as the presence of manipulability in religious and political life and in personal, intimate human relationships, are particularly important to me.

Over the past ten years, the recognition that the loosened moral discipline of the Late Mediaeval Period can be paralleled by similar contemporary social phenomena, has increasingly defined my artistic concept. By outlining this, I began to process and put into a contemporary context various religious topics. My series titled the Seven Deadly Sins, the Ten Commandments, the Seven Sacraments, the 95 Thesis of Luther, and Infinity, were formed along this concept.

More recently, I have been interested in the inevitable aspects of the establishment and functioning of human relationships, the fragility of our relationships, in what personality traits a particular culture supports and expects, as well as how we can meet them during our self-validation, and life progression.

My current plans include installations that are intended to express this latter idea. Due to my graphic designer qualification, I use the technical solutions where the final form receives its shape from placing several layers or different textures on top of each other, summing up the complexity and diversity of a particular subject.
