About me

My photo

I am always seeking new forms and expressional techniques while trying to stay true to the classical traditions of the world of art. I believe that emotional charge and adventurous nature translated in the blasts of vivid colors and the special light-emitting space of a painting would invoke positive emotions in the viewers’ souls, helping them to break away from the dull side of everyday life. I am trying to live an interesting life, drawing my inspiration from poetry, music, travel across the world, sailing, and the amazing people I meet in the process. I do believe that "beauty will save the world".
