I am an artist living in Ukraine with passionate love for furry little friends, coffee and most of all - Creation. Art for me is not a job, a hobby or an interest. It is who I am and what makes my life juices flowing.
I believe that everyone has a life purpose. And the most important thing in a fulfilling life is to discover your unique gift, nurture it and use it to leave this world a better place than you found it. I’ve never been happier than since I had finally discovered my gift, but now that I’ve got the necessary skill and resources I want to make it impactful and meaningful.
I’ve been a freelance artist for years, but all the commercial work I’ve been doing have been steadily bringing me less and less fulfillment. Not because the projects were boring (quite the contrary!) but because all this time I’ve had a weird nagging feeling that this is not what I’m supposed to be doing, that somehow I’ve been disloyal to myself. I want creating work that comes from my Soul and not from the unpaid bills.
In pursuit of my goal of becoming a self-sustained artist I am running a Patreon to gather people who share same beliefs and want to help me on this journey. I am also running my art store offering Limited Edition prints and original artwork.
I enjoy exploring cultures, myths and legends and pondering over the bits of real history behind them. I believe that there’s much more to it than school textbooks want us to think and the only way to be ready for the future is to know your real past. All of these influences bleed into my work – I love implying symbols and giving hints, instead of telling definite stories. Just like our true history, where a lot of things are still uncertain and one can only piece together evidence, I love giving clues in my paintings and let people make up their own mind and come up with their own stories.
I think that every single person is a Creator with a great imagination, but many forgot about this dusty ornate door in the far-off corner of their Mind. I want to help re-discover it.
