It is a common thing for people living in big cities to perceive them as grey and unremarkable.
I believe that it is an artist's duty to show to people the facets of life and visual beauty of everyday environments that they don’t necessarily see.
I am of an opinion that if people will be able to discern the “remarkable in the unremarkable”, they
will change their attitude to the place they live in. This very skill can lead to the majority of people being happier and more satisfied with their quotidian visuals.
Nature in the variety is another point of focus in my art. I relish painting landscapes in the sunrise
and sunset, rainy or windy weather, snow mountains and poppy fields.
Having travelled a lot, I always come back from these travels with lots of sketches, that serve as inspirations for the new paintings.
As per mediums, I float between watercolours, pastels, charcoal and mix of all of
them. I don’t just use brushes as painting tools, but prefer a more dynamic and expressive method of application of paint: I use palms, fingers, palette knives and
Most predominant topics of my paintings are landscapes and cityscapes, whether done in an academic style or more loosely:
when the landscapes become abstract inner spaces.
