Each person has his or her own idea of the world. Picture is the window to the world of the artist, who has an opportunity to create things that are impossible in the real world. My world is the world of the metamorphosis and paradox, which are reality for me, and this reality I materialize in my works. I like to be surprised and astonished, I like to surprise and astonish myself. Creativity should inspire and arouse creativeness. I invite you to travel in the world of my fantasies.
