What is creativity for me?
It is the air I want to breathe. It is the language of my paintings, in which I have a conversation about the existing world with those who want to hear. Each time I want to say something, I express myself by means of my painting language. Texture, colour, composition – are the grammar I use to create still-life, abstracts, scenes or landscape. I draw the topics for my paintings from real and imaginary spaces. Reality lurks in the imagination and fantasy and imagination help to see reality. This method was probably shaped by my practice as an illustrator of books for children, which demanded deeper perception and studies of folk art. I open and explore the existing reality by using my imagination, trying to gain insight into the essence of things to reveal their algorithm and fractal nature.
What is the purpose of my work?
As with any other activity – it is a constant self-improvement. A search of the new and unexplored. Life and work in harmony with nature and the laws of the universe. Each painting is a solution that may appear spontaneously, but sometimes tediously and painfully. A little rest is all I need before going back to work again…
