For me, art is a reflection of the world in which we live. A work of art represents the engagement between a specific space and a particular experience. I have discovered that walking is the best way to interact with one’s surroundings and facilitate extraordinary experiences for the audience. Through the act of walking, my mind, spirit, and body connect, allowing me to feel fully present. In this way, I use walking as a device for art production. Therefore, I do it in two ways: when I walk with people and when I walk alone.

Primarily, I facilitate walks where participants can approach their everyday environment from a different perspective and imagine new possibilities. By encouraging participants to engage with their surroundings in a contemplative and meaningful way, a spontaneous community forms, united by the collective experience of exploration and discovery.

When walking alone, it becomes both a source of inspiration and a channel for art production. This process enables me to immerse myself in the environment, capturing the subtleties of light, sound, and texture that might otherwise go unnoticed. In my studio, I analyze my experiences, translating ephemeral moments into tangible forms. The resulting artworks are not only a testament to the journey itself but also a trace of my way of understanding the world.


I see the map as a writer confronts the empty page.
I cross lines on the map as a painter dabs brush strokes on the canvas.
I move through the space with a sculptor's perspective.
Following the steps of our ancestors,
I invite you to walk together to explore our place in the world.
