Current subject of my artwork is nature. After several years of drawing still life and nude drawings, the desire to test the colours awakened. I decided to dive into the world of colours. The best source for this is nature with its endless colour palette. The greatest painter in the world is nature and trying to transfer that beauty to the canvas is a great challenge and pleasure.

To achieve this I use different techniques and approaches. I attempt not to repeat the same process of painting, but always expressing myself in different ways. Most of my works are large formats because I can explore more with composition and colours.

Through my works coloristic sense can be noticed, almost realistic but camouflaged with bright unusual colours. By observing nature I am trying to connect figurative and abstract ways of painting through expressive ways full of vivid colours. My goal is to explore and excel in the field of painting. I hope my paintings will talk for themselves.
