''My biggest influence as a surrealist is Salvador Dali, as he is for many surrealist and on surrealism in general. If it weren't for Dali, I would probably not be painting now. Other influences are Rene Magritte and presently a French surrealist, Roland Heyder.
I think art should say something, it should make you wonder not just repeat what you can already see, surrealism does that. That is why I call it unreal realism. ''
