I discovered Shibari back in 2010, but I didn’t start with my first steps into it until 2012.
Pursuing something I knew it was for me, I began an intense journey discovering myself and humanity through Shibari.
After having taken almost all the opportunities I’d created for myself, my view of Shibari went to a natural shape and flow that fitted more with my believes as a human being, as a professional, and as a creator.
My perspective on Shibari is focused on an art form which is an open source for infinite possibilities of creation. As any art form, a style and approach can be taught to others, be experimented with, be open to evolve, to change, to create//to enhance creativity.
I do not consider myself part of any movement, following any specific style or master.
My way of tying, teaching, and my knowledge are a mix of many years of experience, self-improvement, conscious evolution, and unique sense of style.
Since the first moment, I stepped into it.
I gave the chance to try, I walked forward it, I learned, I created, I destroyed.
I never waited to come to me, I went for it.
I found somehow a path, pulled aside the rocks on my way, I built the roads to where I wanted to go, where I wanted to be.
I met unbelievable beings through Shibari, and there is still a lot on the way to come and go.
Immensely grateful to every person I learnt from and shared with, in different ways.
I hope you can be part of it too.
My work covers a few areas and you can find some of them on this website:
-Shibari educator: giving group workshops, small and regular group class, online tutorials, private tuition for people who want to learn how to tie and be tied up.
-Shibari Performer: giving duo performances at events, festivals, to audio-visual mediums.
-Rope circus performer: As a solo artist, I merged Circus with Shibari creating a unique style.
-Installation artist: Creating artworks with jute ropes for venues, galleries and so on.
-Photographer: I create artistic photography related to Shibari for various purposes.
-Rope provider: Selling products, including jute ropes for Shibari use.
