Being the son of a painter, is living with art since the year he was born. Although he grew up without television, the paintings, images and stories hanging in the house, left a visual mark on him. After graduating from the Business Faculty in Maribor he traveled the world and started studying Visual Arts in Colombia.

When not creating in front of a computer, he does sports, reading and he generally tries to constantly broaden his horizons.
