I believe that art is not only a way to express ourselves, but also a unique key to unlocking the knowledge of the hidden world.

From a very young age, I sought to explore this unseen realm, relying on my intuition to find the answers I seek.

Although I am mostly interested in something more exalted, I love nature and often hiking. A solitude with nature helps me to gain solace that gives me an opportunity to convey my thoughts on canvas with stronger confidence.

I approach my work without preconception, allowing spontaneous things to happen at the very first. This is what shapes the basic composition at the initial stage.

Finally, I take advantage of an amazing ability of the human mind to find order in chaos—this ability lets me discover the details.

I mostly strive to get away from banal copying of reality, preferring instead to create one of my own—something that somehow reflects my inner world.

Life is an enigma that does not have any logical explanation. In my creative endeavor, I try to apply a more philosophical approach and to hint at the mystical origin of all things.

I don’t work with computers, or image sources—everything is created “through imagination” to reach a broader sensibility and greater satisfaction.

My work refers to the notions of preexisting ideas, knowledge and beliefs present in the mind, something that I’m born with rather than something I have learned through experience.

It’s a memory beyond the consequence of time—a creative look at the processes that happen underneath our reality. I just want to explore it from a slightly different angle.

In the end, however, my hope is that those who view my work may participate in the creative process—perceiving the painting only as a foundation that waits for their minds to draw upon it any picture they want.
