Titö comes from a humble origin. He was fortunate to travel with his parents from a very young age between various countries and cities, which inspired him to be a natural wanderer.
His parents traveled between countries and cities for career which inspired him to be a natural wanderer. Titö grew up showed artistic aptitude from an early age but chose to study in communication and design. Titö is fortunate to spend his learning years in Toronto where he mostly lives and works and spends summer in Berlin while traveling various parts of Europe.
The passion for art and painting always remained in the heart of his creative thinking. Paradoxical as it may seem, the experience of working as a designer in multi-disciplinary areas helped him experiment with painting from a designer’s point of view and explore the connection between art and design.
A connoisseur of a multicultural lifestyle and exposure to various cultures, people and music inspires him to invest most of his time in painting.
"I have always admired the traditional fine art techniques. The Art students learn from a master and focus on the process, practice step by step to become an expert but I also like to search for the accidental result of taking risk that is messy and spontaneous. I want the viewer to be able to stare at my paintings and feel part of my process.
I struggle in each painting and I make discovery of my own when I put in the hard work with passion. I find there is a lot to learn from the great artists of abstract expressionism. I also like taking a traditional approach when I start a painting, then break away with a carefree mindset to a point of loosing myself in the risks I take.
As a self-taught painter, I like to follow the footsteps of my favourite masters from history to discover the thought process they might have gone through. I am searching for something unique and I wish to create a body of work of my own, to be subtle and different. For me, a painting needs be powerful enough to connect with the eyes of the beholder while hinting that the painter took time to think artistically and executed it skillfully."
