I never have thoughts like: “I want to paint, let me think of something to paint.” I sit down to work, when I have a full vision. The desire to put on paper things I have in my head kind of gets grip of me. At moments like these, I feel like I have wings.
At the same time, I want to share all these images with others, so maybe that’s why I paint. It drives me a lot, like a lottery. For myself, I can scribble and doodle, when images come to my mind in the middle of the night. I think ideas should be written down, sometimes with just one word that will remind you of everything later.
The idea and the aesthetics are important for me. In times like ours, it’s quite difficult to create something entirely new. You need the detail that will make your work speak up.
On the tools I use: I paint with the colors that I feel the world with. There is no explanation more precise. My works are always mellow and pastel. Perhaps, I didn’t try enough LSD to have splashes of color. It’s a joke, of course, but it has a seed of truth in it.
During my studies, I understood that in art, everything is much simpler. You don’t have to search and create added complications. The point is you are doing something that is yours only. If there are people who take interest in that, who like that – it means you’re doing it well.
