On my exhibition I present 21 paintings. This number is not a coincidence. It is a symbol of a harmony and a fulfillment. It is also a development that never ends, wisdom which you can achieve by trying to be perfect. It is a need of knowledge and recognition of a universal truth.

I’m walking on a winding  path as some kind of a passenger walking through a traced earlier road . You may say that new born life does not appear simply nowhere. The roots grown many years ago have marked  the beginning. That's why I follow with the baggage which I was given. I get to know the family and the products of human culture, also the universe and reality.

The energy is the basic property of reality and with the consciousness it becomes the material of a spirit, matter, time and space.  Nature with its natural force and phenomenons have always aroused my curiosity. They've become my first inspirations, thanks to them I started painting. The beauty of a nature enraptures and fascinates… That's how my first dream was formed and it was travelling. During my journeys I meet a lot of people. Relationships with them are a kind of a barometer, which helps me to get to know myself better and also shape my identity.

Meeting other people, exploring new places and participating in different situations helped me to grow my inner energy, which as a volcano lied inside me. Concentrating on a burst of energy brought out a new power - discovering unknown by intuition. Currently I’m searching and creating my own sense of life in order to find the inner harmony.
