"I became an artist to translate the surrounding world into my own language. I transform my emotions into art pieces which can say about me more than anything else. The only time I am truly content is when I have a chance to create. My paintings are an emotional manifesto, which emphasize the ultimate visual impact. My uncontrolled imagination is a crucial part of my work and the greatest formation of my visual language. I use my brush as powerful tool of self-expression. I transform simple and refined shapes into dramatic scenery of graceful forms , brilliant colours and texture. This is where they all together become a true reflection of forever changing world."
