"The World Next Door is the name of a new collection of works where I try to illustrate a fantastic world by blending my own vision with different elements and characters from mythological and divine stories. It is a fusion of symbols taken from both machine and none machine world.
When making these series, I have been time travelling, trying to understand and recreate the world in an ironic way, with an addition of surreal and spiritual elements." - MAD
