My work is based on mythmaking, I am especially attracted by the idea of personal mythology and work with fantastic plots. The main theme of my work is the study of otherness and the life of other selves in society.
I work in various media, from painting to performance art. The choice of materials for me is not accidental, but it is directly related to the plot of the picture and the nature of my characters. Color and composition tend to emphasize the main line of the story and reveal emotional states of the characters. Sincerity, metaphorical images and a variety of artistic techniques are the basis of my statement.
