"I currently study the work of the Albert Welti (1862-1912) and in particular his painting called “Die Nebelreiter” (http://www.kunstkopie.de/a/welti-albert/nebelreiter.html). The pure formal aesthetic and mystery of this painting goes in the direction of my theme of predilection: the mystic and the animal.
Also the German artist Sigmar Polke and his use of painting, printing and photography as well as his transformation of existing icons such as Goya engravings, wraps up my formal influences for my actual work."
