The use of assemblage as an approach to making art goes back to Pablo Picasso’s cubist constructions, the three dimensional works he began to make from 1912. An early example is his Still Life 1914 which is made from scraps of wood and a length of tablecloth fringing, glued together and painted. Picasso continued to use assemblage intermittently throughout his career.

In 1918 dada artist Kurt Schwitters began to use scavenged scrap materials to create collages and assemblages – he called this technique ‘merz’. Assemblage also became the basis for many surrealist objects. Inspired by psychologist Sigmund Freud’s writings about the unconscious and dreams, surrealist artists often combined unlikely combinations of found objects to create surprising and unsettling sculptures.

During the late 70’s, he was a keen student of cubism, synchronism, and other aesthetic programs of modern art. From maneuver pigments to monochromatic paintings, he felt like he was inside a huge aesthetic warehouse trying to collect as much visual data as he could. But even with all this modern visual vocabulary, he found it hard to give birth to a true and satisfying emotion. He began to incorporate modern aesthetic knowledge with profound, mythical and romantic qualities of old masters to comment on the human
consciousness and merge the tangible of everyday life in an in differential stream of images, objects, and social statements.

“I work mainly with aqueous mediums of acrylic and watercolor. Most of my works are figurative; they are basically personal responses to things that surround me.”
