Issues of geographical and cultural nomadism are a constant preoccupation of my work as an educator, artist and scholar. I practice drawing, drifting and daydreaming, not as means to escape from reality, but as ways of being driven into society and gain a better understanding of its idiosyncrasies and complexity.
