For me, doing art is a meditation and an affirmation of life, that lifts me above the problems of everyday. My passion for colors let me take the artist-name "Chromosoph" (greek for "Color-Lover" or "Color-Thinker") I started as a realistic painter. Now I'm a figurative painter but I love the infinite freedom of abstractions... so most of my art is "figurative abstraction"

My artistic influences are based in the art of the early impressionists, the "School of Barbizon". Like the work of those artists, I explore the space between realistic and abstract art - in a rich and diverse stylistic texture.

I hope you enjoy looking at my work. Questions? dont hesitate to contact me.
