“In 2008, when I was 19, we had a Mark Rothko Retrospective in Munich. Coming from an artist family, I have always been interested in art. But standing in front of those large colourfield paintings was an eye-opener. I stood there, deeply moved and mesmerized by their beauty– for the first time consciously recognizing the profound impact that colour has on the human psyche. And I knew, that if I ever became an artist, colour would be my major subject.”
