"This is a portrait of my daughter Nina, who is today 10 years old. she is the main subject of my work since she was born and it is mostly through her and because of her that I became a painter. I have painted her portrait for the first time in 2007 and I think now that I have made more than a hundred different ones so far today. The idea is for her later to understand how much I missed her, as we do not live together." C215.
