The architectural structures that appear in my works have organic forms so that they have their own lives. Usually I work spontaneously, and I rarely make schematic sketches. The idea emerges gradually or it is a spontaneous emotional record.
The area of my experiments includes the observations of nature, both in its abstract aspect and the daily reality. Based on what is around me, I create an image of the world as seen from the angle of my own experience. The visible reality is a pretext for entering the world of fantasy, legends, and myths, where simple, timeless values are combined with eternal desires and fears. This world, full of picturesque, fantastic characters is a rich source of my inspirations and, at the same time, it allows me to express freely.
