He enjoys pulling inspiration from what’s around him everyday. Being in the present fashion trade, he has an overwhelming desire to bring back the craft men side of the industry and present it on every gallery wall around the world. To do that, he creates TesT studios, a platform where he can challenge himself and the profession. Not just with his talent, but with his subject matter.

For him, these stories in their bare essence is about self endurance, solidarity, pride, undying passion and love. Some things all humans can relate too.
