About the author
I think of my art as a playful interconnection between nature, people, their lifestyles, in general everything that is happening around me daily. I express it through stylized botanical fragments, details of the buildings, my own and others' habits, characters, routines, their joys and worries… At the same time combining the story and colour contrast in a playful manner.
Humour plays a big part in my art. I am trying simply to bring you to a bizarre, funny childlike yet not childish feeling, where you can also find space for your interpretation.
There's nothing logical to my art - I don't restrain myself with rules or predetermined colour palettes. I create as I go, in the moment and all paintings are born organically.
In the end, it’s all interconnected, one would not exist without the other. My painting is like one big story created from many smaller ones, it's just like life is.
By using different media, such as acrylic paint, markers, watercolours, and polychromos pencils I am bringing my work to a sharp, vivid finish. Most of the time my first raw ideas appear in a sketchbook, which I continuously work on. Sketchbook - is my type of treasure.
During the creative process, new ideas and concepts arise, leading me towards further research and development. I do not know what end result will look like, it is an unpredictable journey, full of quirky and colourful surprises.
