I like to try something what I didn’t do before, to expand the perception of the world. I fascinate by the opportunity to try myself as a fabler with my own heroes, the chance to transform my inner feeling of the world to visual form, from chaos to cosmos. It attracts me as a big power, the freedom of choice and will.
It’s important for me to envelop my own perception of the world to the visual form in order to be, to feel, to reside my own life, to delight and observe the changes in my picture of the world. I’m very interested to move deeper, to go wider, to unlock the unknown and solve the equation.
I explore the theme of uniqueness and diversity of each person, the connection between inner and external world. I break the conventions in which I was placed and try to create my own rules of communication with the universe. I am inspired by the idea of combining incompatible, creating something out of nothing, amazing coincidence, which then develop into a unique stories.
