Grotesque, disquieting and ironic representation of a soul searching for liberation, a logical sense in the apparent chaos and randomness of human existence. The five afflictions of the mind in yoga philosophy are embodied by five hybrid humanoids.

5 KLESHA is a life long artwork conceived as a contemplation of human miseries (Ignorance - Ego - Desire - Hate - Fear of death) in the struggle between alien technologies and animal impulses, masculine and feminine genders, baroque excess and zen essence.
