LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
For as long as I can remember, I have always been drawing. This thing to do has always been natural and necessary for me. I remember an episode from early childhood. I was 3 years old. Dad and I were going home by bus. A sticker with a lion cub near the driver’s cab attracted my attention. I closed my eyes and imagined how I would paint my lion cub on paper. We ran home, from the bus stop. I had to get to pencils faster. Obviously, this was the moment of realizing my ability to creative.
My concept is original technique for original ideas. It is not a spontaneous insight or discovery. This is all my experience, knowledge and daily work. My artistic space is my life. This is what happens to me and around me. Looking at my life through art is natural for me. I memorize and record ideas, lights, and colors.
I try to combine painting with graphics literally. However, this combination of different techniques is not an end in itself. An idea is the most important. The method of embodiment is chosen for it.I am trying to convey this with my author's technique, which I keep on developing. In my work, I often use surrealistic stories, with encrypted images, which are not easy to see sometimes. In addition, I like to introduce flashes of light using an open color palette and the synthesis of graphic elements. Well actually, I prefer to express everything on canvas, in order not to do it with words;).
If you have knowledge and skills, you always want to do more and know more. This process is endless. Creativity makes us free and does not allow us to stop.
