Artist and Illustrator.
I work in oils, mixed media and digital, in shades of a muted palette, striving for vivid images of magical realism with elements of symbolism. I have been professionally creating personal paintings, graphics and objects since 2015.
Observing the surrounding world and living through my personal experience in it, I find poetic patterns in the reality of the world. In my artistic practice I interpret them and reflect on them with the help of figurative visualisation of characters and plots. I love to tell stories, reflect on emotions and human states through the prism of the characters I create, endowing them with special symbolism and immersing them in a surreal atmosphere. A world filled with secrets and magic, like a forgotten circus in the thicket of a dark forest.
My works are reflections on contradictions, struggle, fears. But also they are about strength, love and hope. About finding harmony and balance in this far from ideal world.
The characters face their own quests, difficulties and joys. Through the eyes of the heroes, left alone with their feelings, I study various states that we experience in the deepest corners of our mind.
The regularity of the relationship between man and nature, our influence on each other, our place in time, history, religion and science, folklore, the origin of mankind and human conflict are some of many topics and directions that fascinate me.
‘Individuality rests on a sense of mystery; dark blindfolds of character represent the only points in the world where we touch a living fluid reality, where we directly know what is happening and how. ” William James
