"I use images of animals to tell about people,
furthermore, certainly about relations between a man and a woman.
After all, we are all a bit animals...
Pyramids, that I create, have a philosophical and spiritual concept that reflects a balance of opposing forces in human life.
Each element of a pyramid is a symbol and has an implicit meaning.
- The bird symbolizes spirituality.
- The key is the answer to the questions.
The human desire for harmonious development is emphasized in the paintings. All elements of a pyramid are interconnected.
However, each viewer can find their own correlation of these elements."
