My main goal is to create textures and tactile elements which the viewer can touch and feel while his imagination takes him into a natural world. In my work, one can observe the interactions between different media.

After his experience in Sicily during his Medpot scholarship, Stiefnu is presently working on commissions and is developing his work through an experimental and contemporary approach.
In everyday life, we live in a world full of natural elements; elements which we cannot touch all the time, but which are there living with us and observing us. The main inspiration in my work comes from the organic world.
When working on a composition, my main goal is to create textures and tactile elements which the viewer can touch and feel while his imagination takes him into a natural world. In my work, one can observe the reactions and interactions between different media, floating on different grounds.
The prawn inspiration started during my one-month scholarship in Sciacca, where I had the time to study sea creatures in detail. The prawn is one of the subjects I enjoy exploring and exploiting, by developing it into paintings and 3D constructed forms.
My current work is a development cycle of my previous ones. It is more experimental and more expressive.
