About myself and my artworks

I am an optimist in life. I even make the destruction positive. However, in my work I do not perceive glamor and insane fun. Also, I would not want to be considered an impressionist, as they sometimes write about me. In general, I do not belong to any direction. For me, the main thing is the goal and the idea, and not the means of their expression.

I always want to go a new way. It happens that an artist has found his niche: composition, color, theme or element - and has driven to stamp. This is not for me. An artist must be interesting, he must change, despite the commercial component.
