High Technology as a Drama of Our Time

'I believe that an artist is a tool that reacts to any change in the entropy of the world, so it is vital for me to express these fluctuations on the canvas. I am inspired by the rapid transformation of the technogenic world and its impact on modern man.

As one of my favourite writers wrote: "May you live in interesting times."
One very ancient curse...

“If I do not see evil, do not hear about evil and do not say anything about it, then I am protected from it”

Without hearing, there is no chance to be objective.

Closing our eyes, we simply move away from what is happening in the world.

Without expressing our opinion, we accept someone else's choice.

The general tense situation in the world deprives us of the opportunity to pretend that everything that happens around us does not concern us. Therefore, we begin to feel even more acutely the restrictions that political games are trying to impose on us.

The current stage is not yet a search for answers, but only an attempt to formulate questions.

We live in the age of information technology. Computer technology has reached the level of augmented reality and surrounds us everywhere. Under such conditions, it is not at all surprising that an increasing number of people prefer to abandon real life and create their own virtual reality. They live exclusively on the Internet: they have virtual love, and friendship, and they even express their emotions in electronic language.

It is important for me to convey the feeling of the dissolution of the individual in the information flow, and I build my aesthetics under the impression of the era of virtual reality. I am interested in the emotional content of the drama of our time: high technology, the defenselessness of a person "in the network" not only in front of himself'
