The main subject I work with is the transformation of images, concepts, ideas, forms and meanings in the consciousness and unconscious of an individual whose thinking is qualitatively and fundamentally different from the generally accepted standards and norms.

I explore the influence of my mental characteristics on understanding processes such as art, creativity, and the search for meaning.

What is reality? What is a dream? What is thought? What is everything else and how do I conscious that?

The process of creation in my work differs from the classical one in that it is controlled by the periphery of the unconscious or by something or someone, but not by me. I do not work on artwork in the ordinary sense, as other artists do, I do not select colors, I do not build a composition. I ask the Universe a question and get an answer in the form of an image, which I then transfer to the canvas. Often the view comes in a dream or half-sleep.

When working with canvas and paints, I also trust the inner impulse. Personally, I don't know how best to mix colors or convey volume, but someone, some part outside of my mind knows, and I trust it.

Until recently (not counting custom-made works) I have brought to life the images that spontaneously visited me, but now I am working on several themes combined into projects.

I am a resident of Outsiderville Gallery.
