 I like people, their looks, emotions and expressions and I am challenged to paint them in order to be able to see beyond them.

In this series of portrait paintings, I tried to show how today’s young people are influenced by the technology that surrounds them. It was painted with Oil on linen 90cmx75cm and I brought the background of the canvas to be part of the image, giving an extra light effect which helps me to give the impression of integration from the youths in their environment.
