artist blog


Some time ago I’ve clearly realised that given all that freedom, no rules, one man decision - things we know and love Art for, we still are just a service to other people and without other people we are not even true artists because there is no one to appreciate and acknowledge it.
All I do strictly for myself as an artist, at the end of the day, I do for other people. I want to become a better person because of art and hopefully others become a little better because of my art.


Everything goes well with everything if you don’t apply any predetermined rules to it (aka create your own).


I (would) like to create new trends but I don’t like to follow any. I know I do anyways but still I try to unfollow even my own trends in art as soon as I create new one.


Last eight years the only thing I could dream about has been creating my own visual language. Universal, reusable, flexible, attractive and unique.
Now, finally, when I have created it, I can speak it.
My sentences are my assemblages and paintings. My words are elements of composition. My meanings are your impressions.
See my speaking.


Here it is. This beautiful and absolutely infinite present moment. I can go billion years back or forth in time still being in this very moment.
Everything that has ever happened, it happened now!
Everything that will happen, will happen now!
We are here forever.


I got much more freedom as an artist after I stopped adding any context, meaning, philosophy, explanation to the art I make.



Lately, I’ve been thinking that it would be great to share my thoughts, ideas, process and updates here, on my website, in a form of a personal blog. This will allow people who likes what I do to know me better as a practicing artist and maybe to find something new and useful for themselves.

Welcome everyone!
