Personal credo:

Not to lose a measure in anything.

About me:

I try to work in different painting techniques and genres. I prefer the classic approach to creating forms without undue emotion. For me the classic - it's all that ended at the times of Modernism. Sacral themes in painting induce not only to react to the surrounding world but also to offer some answers. I’m trying to find my own theme and form in art.
