2. Tell us about your aesthetic.My aesthetic is fundamentally based on Andy Warhol's 'Pop Art', minimalism and some touch surrealism.
3. What is your favourite medium and why?For my photos I always use in my studio rolls of cardboard to create the set, besides the classic main object (LEGO, banana ...). I always shoot with my little Sony a7 and finally edit in Photoshop.
