Art

 

The artist writes in a distinctive genre, close to naïve art, a mixture of figurative art and abstraction. Each work is one of a fictional world in which there are multiple storylines, typical characters, and protagonists, its own pace, movement, and rhythm. Looking at the artwork there is a feeling that you have been there and have experienced similar history. In each art piece the spectator finds something different and each time something new. 

 

Artist’s statement

 

"We live in the era of the monotonous rhythm of life. From work to home. From home to work. I call this condition a robotization, because we are like robots, doing many things mindlessly, automatically. I think one of my tasks is to take the viewer a minute from this state and provide a rocket-like impulse that would rip him out of this context and allow him to dream, to escape from reality, or to be for a moment in another world.

 

My paintings are multi-threaded stories with different rhythm, tempo, and color combinations. It is a fiction, a fantasy, something non-existent. However, often parallels might be drawn with real people lives, practices and principles, routines, habits, or affections. It is interesting to observe, analyze, and shift the results into the language of abstraction. In some sense it is an allegorical analysis of the existing model of life, or a mystery of a suddenly-occurred plot. The expressive symbolism."
