Since I can remember, I've always felt a lot of pleasure
when I create things that express my dreams and fascinations.
That feeling followed me until today. The endless moments of
drawing at my parental home, what I often did together with
my sister, formed the fundament of my ambition to live my
life as an artist. I wanted to be an illustrator, a film director,
an animator, a prop maker, but now I realize there's no
need to categorize myself. Maybe is an "allround artist"
also a category?
Anyway, art always came across my path.
In March 2019, the initials 'lvb' were no longer only a
signature that I added to a finished artwork. They formed
the name of my own art practice. lvb art means passion,
professionality, quality above quantity, authenticity, plea-
sure, variety, experiment. But especially: catching the
soul of animals into impressive, handmade artworks
that come alive in a unique way. The autonomous
part of lvb art mainly highlights the
relationship between humans and
animals and the tension between
nature and artificiality. These works
are often characterized by their
surreal, imaginative accents and
playful aspects, which invite
to discuss everyday sub-
jects and personal
thing in my life is to
believe in adventures that
can change my point of view,
even if I am a bit afraid of them.
To give the inner child in me room to observe the world more purely and also to bring magic in common things.
We can be puppets of our own life, but life can also be a puppet for us.
It's just how you decide to look upon the things that surround you.
