Kosmotroniks -ButterFlyCatchingMachineTank

My art reflects all that I loved, watched and did as a kid.
I'm myself's biggest fan!

What themes does your work involve?
It is about bringing a smile to people with my own created world called Kosmotroniks.
Describe your creative process.
I just start building. I never make a drawing first. It's what happens in the moment. Because of that, every build is an adventure for me.
What influences your work? What inspires you?
Big influences are music, Stanley Kubrick, toy stories, model kits, movies, model builders.
What is good art? What makes a piece of art great?
I only can talk about my own art. Unexpected things while making it, make my art/Kosmotroniks great. These are the best moments.
What is the role of the artist today?
My art is totally unique. There is nothing in the world to compare it with. That’s one of the things that makes my art so interesting.
