I - Creation
My canvases, first of all, should give aesthetic pleasure, like all media working with the visual part. But I don't want to go into one solid beautiful visual that doesn't contain any plot or statement.
Sudden ideas come to me, which I write down in a notebook with drafts. Usually these are visual images, sometimes words, sometimes plots. And after a while I go back to the sketch and make it into a beautiful "wrapper".
The work should establish contact with the viewer so that the audience catches the eye. And only then she will be able to immerse herself in the world of the artist's reasoning, in this case, in my world.
II - Message, content, research
I don't have a clear set research goal. And the research is meticulous for me.
The whole life is a gigantic research work, which can be divided into smaller works.
So I explore – I write down all the thoughts that I have in the course of life. My works are a reaction to the events and trends of the modern world.
There is especially a lot of criticism on my canvases, and you can criticise everything. There is, probably, provocation as an instrument of attention.
Maybe I'm studying the "Russian man", because I am one myself. At the moment I am learning about life, the life of a young man in Russia.
III - Pink
Pink color is present in all my works (with the exception of "Free running"). Why pink?
For me, this color is a symbol of innocence and openness. There is a lot of pink in a person. Skin, internal organs, muscles… This is nature itself, naturalness, the beginning of everything.
Of course, pink is different for everyone. But its brightness and softness attract everyone.
