Painting Graphics Sketches

y worldview has its roots in identifying my inner space as an alternative civilization that interacts
with the outside world through art.

Alternative civilization within ourselves could be created by the beauty, that we're absorbing from the art: paintings, music, poetry. And as a result of our inner efforts it becomes a source of inspiration and vitality.

Expressionism, in my case, is completely based on impressions which are not of this world, but of the inner one, where I'm trying to store all the best things I've ever encountered, heard, seen, or felt...

sually in my work I prefer the classic techniques:
oil, tempera, watercolor, ink... But sometimes I like to experiment with different materials and textures.

Also I like to combine classical techniques and modern motifs,
volumetric and spatial forms plus abstract elements.
y understanding of graphics as a genre of visual art is as a part of the painting process. Graphics just explores aspects such as: composition, plastic, tones and relationship between spots and lines.

Everything I do in the graphic compositions is going to go into the paintings. Nevertheless, sometimes it is possible to create a compleetly done artwork.
ketching is my daily fun and entertainment. Nevertheless, this work is very important for the formation of my graphic language. Every time I draw something in a sketchbook, I replenish my “graphic lexical” margin. Because I can say in graphic language that which cannot be said in words.
