'World technology is rapidly advancing. Increasingly accurate and technological cameras reproduce reality better than artists. Technology is already ahead of human capabilities in many ways, and we can endlessly reflect on what our world will be like in 100 years when technology will enter our lives even more. The problem of interaction between technology and society deeply involves me, especially the human capabilities limits in this symbiosis.
I am learning the question, using the knowledge of world artistic heritage, moving with hyperrealism and photorealism, working with sculptural volumes, striving for an ideal form, for a sense of a real object.
At a time when everyone is striving for digital space, I reach to create an accurate illusion of my reality with my own hands. I am breaking the plane space without breaking it physically, deeply immersing, operating with a planar image, I would like to create an accurate illusion of reality, putting my feelings and worldviews into this reality.
My creating process is a kind of challenge. I am in every millimetre of my painting, exploring and realising, honing my skills and concentrating on the smallest details. So the process of creation is equal to the result.
I love beauty in all its manifestations - the beauty of the things around me, the beauty of faces, the beauty of colour combinations and light. Beauty is a relative, but I follow my inner feeling and depict what is beautiful to me. Sometimes I load beauty with inner meanings and ideas, but not always because beauty is above meanings'
