Art Bio

For me, painting is a way of creating a dialogue with reality. Even topics that are trivial at first glance can hide multiple senses and symbols and contain versatile values.  Art helps me accept the world I live in.  

I try to follow nature which is the essence of a human being - diverse, powerful and ambivalent.  I find balance between tangible and abstract things, realism and dreams, geometric and shapeless objects.  Painting, despite its limitations, is a perfect form of expression.  It can express knowledge and emotions.  I use various methods not just for experimentation’s sake, but to highlight the unevenness of the world; I thrive to express this in my paintings.

Creation teaches humbleness and I don't want to keep my creations to myself.
