Artist statement

My resent work evolves from simple need for creativity. I still have a full-time corporate job, where things get quite monotonous over the years. I'm simply to much of a creative person in order to fully enjoy it. Therefore I am determined that I will continue my mission to create beautiful art for people to enjoy and make myself a full-time living out of it. Yes, I will do it.

Fluid paintings that are part of my latest ''Aqua'' series emerge from my inner love for family, love for nature and life in general. My art represents that love in a unique abstract way. I'm not interested in any kind of political, religious or philosophical meaning of my art. I just feel the need to express myself by pouring my soul on canvas or wooden panel. I work in layers as I go until I decide I've said enough. No special rules, no pressure, I'm transferring my energy to rest on my paintings and stay there. My goal is that people who interact with my work find interesting stories in it and identify with them.

As I work I always use highest grade professional materials and I put a lot of attention to every single detail. I worked really, really hard over last 7 years to develop my techniques and I can say that today my work is perfectly executed when it's done. I wouldn't sign it if I didn't thought it is. I love my art with all my heart.
