My art is typically repsesentative or pure abstract or surreal as well often minimal, which is typically not depending of time or place. I normally don't paint or draw anything human made things.
My style is variable, but it is often strong and expressive with high feelings, emotions and is some how spiritual (not religional). I don't produce long serials same kind of works. I jump from style onto other. I don't want to limit myself, so there are no exact borders in my art. I often be near madness, because I think I can't create anything great from normality. I'm not sure where am I going on, but I try to be every year better and better and being on my way forwards.
Specially then when you give your personal best there are the loudest silence.
I start painting in 1992, when I made my first oil painting Small Harmony. In 1992 I often practised to make hyperrealistic drawings, but soon I understood, that my way is different... My first big interests were surrealism and futurism, and them still are...within abstract art...
my art is not commercial, so it might looks like it is not as high level than older, but the truth is that I'm better and higher level than ever in my own history. I promising to faceless world something, which I am not sure am I able to give anything or if I am, would I...
I'm as much on vacancy than artist could... I'm not able to work just now, but maybe tomorrow...never knows, what's gonna happen next or is it happening anything...
I think that I'm not going to paint until August... I might make some "cheap" quick drawings, but nothing else... I really mean them going to be cheap, but on high quality level... Prices are very low for now. You can find something for price under 100 euros. PayPal is accepted payment method. Just take a contact to me with e-mail.
