“It is not only my dreams, my belief is that all these dreams are yours as well. The only distinction between me and you is that I can articulate them. And that is what poetry or painting or literature or filmmaking is all about… and it is my duty because this might be the inner chronicle of what we are. We have to articulate ourselves, otherwise, we would be cows in the field.”
I have been painting for as long as I can remember. Art creation results in a story, that leaves you a broad field for personalization. Mine – is a story with very intuitive development. The Wind and the sun, which are thriving in Arizona, brought me here from Kiev Ukraine. I chose, but not limited to, acrylic on canvas as a medium I work with. I also work a lot with illustrations and video.
Every day I practice in delivering content to the viewer. I think I try to stick to realism, as this style is the most comprehensible. It is also a means of communication and contact with people by allowing them to relate easier. I hope that one will approach art by feeling it, not just looking at the painting, but laugh or cry over it..(I prefer people smiling though).
I admire interconnection of every aspect of human culture, in a way that each one of the aspects directs the whole by reflecting each other. Once I spent particularly long time looking at the painting ‘The Sleeping Gypsy’ by French Naïve artist Henri Rousseau. The same captivation possesses Pieter Bruegel, Egon Schiele, Andreas Gursky and Elizabeth Peyton.
In the end of a day it is very simple – try telling somebody your last night’s dream and not loose them.
