About the author
"The creative process is always an interpretation, where the moment of surprise is the most important," says the author, so instead of avoiding chance, he puts himself in its hands. The interesting textures of his work have become a signature of the author, well-known to his fans. He sifts, starves, peels, breaks the surface of his works like glass, cultivates it in several layers, sometimes for months, and sometimes even "encrusts" it with a small object, which brings its own new voice to the painting.
The very titles of the paintings show that the artist likes to joke, he doesn't take himself too seriouly, but on deeper level of his works, there is an existential loneliness, sadness, longing, awkwardness, anxiety, melancholy. It is up to the viewer to see how much he will find in them.
