Solo Exhibition "Nostalgic Treasures: A Jurney Through Time"

 I am excited to announce my 3rd solo exhibition with Abend Gallery, "Nostalgic Treasures: A Jurney Through Time".

It features a series of original new small works that delve into the rich tapestry of vintage and diverse subjects. Through my creations, I endeavor to transport viewers on a journey of exploration, delving into the emotional essence of each depicted subject and to arouse curiosity about the untold narratives it harbors, awakening reminiscences, fondness and a range of sentiments.

The exhibition runs from May 18 to June 4 and can be visible online on Abend Gallery's website.
