My work is like a different way of expressing my own feelings, emotions, views and beliefs. Since childhood, I have had a need to express through creativity what is not always possible to express verbally.
In the process, I am drawn to deep reflection on topics like life, the existing various maral philosophical precepts, human relations, social structures and the conflicts and contradictions associated with them. The genres of works seem to be asking for an exit. I feel that I just need to become a guide to their manifestation in life. Most of my work is written on canvas and paper and varies in size. In my works I use a combination of materials such as oil paints, watercolors, gouache, giving them a lot of textures and contrasts. Because I tend to experiment with pattern and form. My creative process begins with themes, perceptions, and aspirations that are overwhelming me. I need to retire, concentrate and delve completely into the process.
Philosophy is based on the fact that everything has its time and purpose. The main thing is to strive for one's own development and to save the development of others. Life and everything that is in it encourage me to think, experience and analyze all this encourage new ideas. I don't think anything is permanent. The desire for self-expression contributes to the process. The process brings a new experience. And experience contributes to new development.
