STATEMENT

On my paintings photos and sculptures I want to show to the people how I feel the universe, how the people can communicate with nature, how they may to feel themselves, without racial pressure, without gender separation, show to all real emotion and feel without fears of judging, I don’t want to show the problem, I want that humans start to feel and hear themself. We are all unique we are all part of a huge universe, we are all should to make our dreams to come true.
At the moment, there are a lot of talented and interesting artists, photographers and sculptors in the world, but unfortunately, it is very difficult to reach the masses, start collaborating with galleries and find art curators and agents, despite the fact that most use social networks for this. I want more opportunities for artists to develop and advance. I want art to be recognized now with living artists, since the pricing of famous artists who died is much higher, because we live in the present and should appreciate the contribution of people living now. After all, it is much more pleasant and interesting to talk live with the artist and observe their work and development. I want art to reach an even higher level, because it is for centuries. In Russia there is a popular expression “An artist must be poor in order to create.” Yes, to some extent there should be such moments, because in such moments other emotions and inspiration are born. But let this expression be the smallest particle in a wide variety of positive emotions, happiness, great financial fortune, travel and love.
