When did you develop an interest in art? What inspired you to enter the art field?
Art has been an important part of my life since childhood. But living conditions and possibilities at that time required practical solutions, and my main work, also my main profession, was not related to art; even though I'm very successful in my main profession. However, my inner world, personal nature didn't forget my interest in art, and just a little more than four years ago, one day I started drawing.. The feeling was that I can't wait any longer. I can confidently say - the need for self-expression through art, painting arose from inside me as something inevitable.
What is your motivation behind your works?
The biggest motivation - to show how beautiful human life is, how wonderful our surroundings are, and how important it is to live our lives to the fullest, even though we need to pass difficult moments in our lives. Painting, drawing helps to reflect this speechlessness, and can reach many souls from different parts of our planet; photography helps to highlight how many amazing moments are just nearby.
How does your creation process of the artworks start?
Mainly creation process of the artwork starts spontaneously, just looking at the empty canvas, and start seeing frames, or ideas are coming on the way - listening to a music, thinking about important things in the life, or just without any thinking or plan in advance - drawing or painting what's coming on the way at that moment. But also I have a lot of plans for creating with different media, on different surfaces, different styles.
What do you want your art to convey to the people?
Being sensitive to oneself, loved ones, environment, the planet, paying attention to small details, being grateful for what we have right now, listening to the voice of the heart would help to release more love in the world.
Talk to the heart, let the soul be the driver, let the dreams be the friends showing the most beautiful and important details on the way.
