"Мy goal is first and foremost to explore my own limits and possibilities. ARCHITECTURE and
DESIGN help me to explore the causality and construction of the material environment in which we live, and the FINE ARTS give me the opportunity to expand these boundaries ...
Тhe understanding the superficial and sensory environment is gradually complemented by the development of intuitive and purely creative beginnings. That`s an endless process that "keeps me on the surface" and at the same time immerses me in a different, parallel reality, filled with symbols and unexpected, sometimes difficult to understand revelations.
I am not one of the artists who produce paintings... I work a lot on the prima vista, but at the same time I give myself enough time to be able to create the best I am capable of... When I understand Myself, then I can understand the Universe and the Spirit of the Universe.
...The experiment continues ..."
