After his early experiments in painting and art he decides to do a 4 years apprenticeship as a sign maker and went to the visual school of art in Bern Switzerland. There he learned all the technique with writing with feathers, work with gold leaf, the color gauge, screen printing and all the other important aspects of creating.  That was a very important part of learning the basics of the materials, techniques and possibilities.

Then a dark period in his life came, after his mother did suicide he went threw a 10 years of creative blockades and trying to forget. In this period, he actually creates not a lot of pieces but with the age of 30 he started again thinking and creating serious art. Always with a normal job in the office during the day, he worked in the evenings and every free minutes and get more and more sure what he wants. He wants to be one of the most successful artist in the world.

With this goal in mind, he made a life changing decision in March 2014 to become a full time artist. This has given him the opportunity to find his unique style. In this year he left Switzerland to work in Asia away from every deflection in Zurich and had his own Art Gallery in Thailand for 1 year.  In this time he work almost every day 15 hours on his technique and ideas and experimented a lot. He also started to produce different accessories with his art on it and created his own Art brand. That was the born of BUBU Collection.

After this time in asia and lots of hours of experimenting and learn a lot about the production process he decided to go back to Switzerland and get his art career to another level.

This year he won the International Emerging Artist Award in Dubai.
