“As well as with immense gratitude, I receive this recognition in the awareness of what it means, in the responsibilities it implies; I hope to be up to it. If this recognition is given to me about the work I do, this merit must be shared with all those people who always support me, even in the most risky artistic choices and not immediately recognized by the market. Those artistic choices whose intent is always in respect of the art and the intelligence of the public”.
