“La Falaise” is a French name translated into “The Cliff”
Walking along side to the Failaise d’Etretat, inspired by the beauty and strong contrasts of the France’s Northern Coast. The verticality and powerful lines between rock and vegetation, between the shades of white cliff, with thick blankets of grass constructed by numerous shades of green, gave influence for creating La Falaise.
It’s significance is very simple: as more as “we get absorbed” into the digital, there is a need for a powerful transition towards the natural and simple.
La Failaise, offers a storm of inspiration. Let yourself be carried in a walk to the beautiful French coastline, a wild and powerful beauty.
Representing a radical experimentation of materials and forms, and most complex exploration of the shades of Fern Green color.
The work was largely fueled by a”primitive” form, the rock. A natural inspiration formed a unique contrast to the humanly fabricated roman column, resulting in a distinctive blend of modernity and timelessness.
The column style provide space to a totally different interpretation: man’s longing and yearning for the spiritual and divine, the manipulation of reality embarking to a dream place.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
In the current context focused on excessive and unsustainable consumerism, the 21st Century welcomes us with a Darwinian transformation for both men and nature. Evolution which leads to the development of a synthetic man living in a synthetic nature. Heavy topics as regeneration and sustainable environment are thrown into the arms of the future generations, that have not been born yet.
Thus, the artist’s creations highlight the synthesis through alternative materials used, such as: synthetic marble (resin and marble dust), synthetic resin (Plexiglass), synthetic cement (Jesmonite), charcoal, wood, and so on. His works have a powerful conceptual plasticity but also physical plasticity, a concept that can be interpreted as modern works of the 21st Century.
His pieces are sold around the world, belonging to private collectors and royal families.
