The creation of my paintings is a long and unpredictable process.
Sometimes the ideas come after years of developing and experimenting, sometimes it takes only a few days. Once the idea is clear in my mind and I can see it, I put it on a small format/size – digital or oil, doing different variations and working on the details. When I am satisfied with the results I start painting on the appropriate size on canvas or board.
What I am looking for in my paintings is to transform different emotions and feelings into visual abstract tones and sizes, I analyze them deeply and try to create a new visual experience – rich in color and tone, structurally strong, and challenging as a composition and texture.
My main inspiration is the beauty of everyday life, but I am also very interested in the world beyond us. There are still so many questions about the universe and I try to get some answers and unfold the positive energy through every piece of my art.
