About the author
I could talk about each piece separately. Mostly I create only from what I myself experience and live in one way or another. I believe that the emotion that I experience remains in my work, it's not just an image or just a graphic, a spot and a line, there is a feeling on the piece of paper and it hovers around the piece wherever it is or wherever it is. Basically, I want to spread joy and positivity through my work, which I feel myself" - says the artist.
