Rich, middle class, and poor

(2016)

Have you ever thought that our world in mostly composed of water ? If we look all around us, the most common hue is the blue: the sky, the lakes and the oceans are Therefore, humans have to live on a fraction of the earth and this is the reason why we see inequalities between people .

I really enjoy traveling to new areas because that makes me understand more of our world and the society in which we live. By exploring and discovering new places, I’m able to transform what I see or what I imagine in paintings. Everybody sees the world differently but and through my paintings people are able to look our world in a unique way, my perspective. Through my paintings, I share messages, decrying what the trends in society: The inequalities and the creation of the distinct social strata. Indeed, society doesn’t give the same chance to everybody and some don't succeed in making their voices heard. Finally, my paintings highlight the inequities in the prevalence of poor, middle and rich classes around the world
