Artist Statement

 

My artworks are a combination of abstract and figurative styles. It allows me to mix real and imaginative worlds. Paintings are a way to speak an internationally understandable language to everybody, send messages, and share thoughts.

From a very young age, I was surrounded by paper, pencils, and paints. Art has become an integral part of my life. It’s my passion, which I put on paper, canvas, screen, etc. Materials don’t matter to me. The first place in my artwork is the idea, and then I choose the right medium. Lately, my thoughts have been embodied in more traditional materials such as oil, acrylic, and tempera. I want to discover something new, based on the experience of previous generations.

I find my inspiration in other art forms like music, literature, cinema. The melody inspires me; it helps me tune into the creative process and feel my particular mood, expressed in the palette, strokes, and composition. I prefer to use bright colors to exaggerate reality so that my viewer does not remain indifferent to the message. My art is multilevel; I hope that everyone sees something of their own in it.
