ARTIST STATEMENT





THE LIFE WAS THE LIGHT OF MEN.The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. The Gospel of Iwann (John)

You have your brush, you have your colors, you paint paradise, then in you go.
Nikos Kazantzakis
 


                    




My style can be described mainly as figurative realism,  and often as imaginative realism and hyper-realism.
 
Creating a new painting for me is a kind of a magical ritual, almost alchemy. In my works I am trying to capture and visually express a quintessence of humans’ emotions and feelings, a pure essence of human’s soul and often hidden deep inner content. Deep emotions do not depend on any boundaries, such as countries, languages, mentalities, religions, races etc. I believe that pure emotions that visually depicted in art works can be perceived by everyone; emotionally powerful artworks can be adopted and understood by everybody in the world as a Universal language. I perceive my paintings as performance of the humans’ soul movements.
 
The fragile magic of life mesmerises me. I see humans’ souls as fragile lights of fireflies in the dark - it is so easy to break this light. And if I am able, as an artist, to transfer this light onto my paintings, maybe I am saving and increasing this light in the world? I’d like to believe that the main purpose of art is keeping this world in balance and harmony; and awareness of that gives me an entire inspiration to continue my work.
