A graphic, a painter, his artistic motto is "the non-evident is probable". Works in mixed, sometimes incompatible - at first sight - techniques, to achieve interesting results. Now, he is interested in creating a process of applying and removing oil paint layer after layer on textured pre-coated surface, which allows the painter to achieve new perception effects.
- Too bad that I have almost no time for drawing just as it is, all my time is taken by creating the plastics of lines and dots - design in pure form, which I am so fond of at the moment. This is exactly what I wrote on one of my own posters: "Design is a holiday that you can always afford; this is something others do not even think about". It's all in that. This is full stop.
