What do you aim to say by the themes in your art?
Through my art I want to bring more awareness, to inspire, to transpose the viewer into another world, a non-conceptual one, a world in which to feel through visualization, to escape from the so-called real world. I want to reach his soul, to break the created personality, to make the viewer himself, without any superimposed mask.
Where does your inspiration come from?
My inspiration comes the moment I start creating. I live in the present moment and I am intuitively carried away by the unknown. I never know what will happen in the end. I also choose my colors intuitively, without taking into account rules or barriers. I think it is very important to be authentic and to express ourselves as freely as possible. Very rarely I am inspired by a photography or a definite object. Nature inspires me a lot, but in a sense that cannot be defined, conceptualized.
Do you have any experiences that have impacted your art?
I started creating when I was a child. I grew up in the countryside with my grandparents and they were very religious. I went to church every Sunday and holiday and that's how I started painting icons at that time. Later I gave up, and in 2019 I adopted a different style and a different technique, generally abstract expressionism because it defines me more. In 2019 I experienced a disappointment at a job and since then I have decided that I will work for my dreams and not someone else's.
Do you feel your art challenges existing barriers?
I definitely believe this and that's what I truly want. I don't like to imitate, I like to be original, not to take into account absolutely no limitations or social diplomas. If I had to think, speak, write, study the rules or exemplify the significance of each creation, I would not paint. I would get lost in a conceptual world that has nothing to do with my world.
What are your long-term artistic goals?
First of all, I would really love and be grateful if my art would inspire and reach many art lovers. This is my goal and I don't think there is greater satisfaction than the one in which someone escapes even for a few seconds from his daily life or from his mind. I want all people to follow without hesitation and courage the dreams that have caught the spider web in the corner of their mind. Thus, I want to participate in as many exhibitions as possible, I want my works with fragments of my soul to travel around the world and to rest where they feel at home. Of course, I want a personal exhibition in the near future.
What advice do you have for aspiring artists?
I would advise them never to give up no matter what obstacles arise in their artistic path. With patience, devotion, passion and work will come the results. We must not rush anything, we must not put pressure, not to compare our art with other artists artworks because we are each unique, and art does not mean perfection. I would also advise them never to let their egos ruin a painting, believing that it is not well enough done. You are much stronger, more creative, more beautiful, more loving, more sensitive and more confident than you can imagine.
