About myself and my artworks:

Painting is my job. When I draw, I feel calm and free. I need privacy and silence in the studio, then everything concentrates in my head and hands.

My main topic is Kyiv: the “portraits” of streets, houses, arches, corners, caryatids, the game of light and shadow. I see it through color: the utmost intensity of color and light. Life is full of surprises. The main thing is to be still able to be taken by surprise. Nature already exists – it is perfect, it can’t be painted, you can only be surprised by it and imagine it as you feel it. Then, any house, any street, any tree, or face will capture and lead you... and you’ll feel the inspiration. My work should bring a feeling of peace and joy.
