I started drawing before I even learnt to speak. I was decorating all the walls in my house with my drawings and every single clean piece of paper that got into my hands. When I was a child my dream was to have an endless amount of paper to be able to express my childhood dreams and visions of the world by way of my drawings. When I decided to go to Arts Secondary School, and then to University, I didn’t think of becoming an artist, I was only glad that I chose a school where the thing I love doing – creating art– will be my main duty.
In visual arts the most important thing for me is the visual message, an idea, a thought which everyone has a chance to read regardless of the language they speak or the cultural background they come from. It is a message on universal values, relations between people and their emotional state, an attempt to present all the things that seem to us plain, normal and usual in an unusual way.
I highly value oil paintings because it gives me a huge variety of technical means for creating a picture in which I can express everything I want. From soft touches of brush and gentle, subtle diffusion of colours to sharp, dynamic hits of palette knife and sharp, intense contrasts.
I look for inspiration either within myself, my imagination and emotions or outside as well. The theme of my art can be everything, landscape outside a window of speeding car, people’s talk sitting at the next table in a pub, theatre piece, music, particular kind of light. I often grab my brushes in order to express my attitude to something or someone. It is to allow me to speak through my paintings if words can’t be found.”…Read More
