For many years I have been working as an artist and a fashion designer at sewing enterprises, including 15 years in my factory of outerwear. At the same time, I was painting with it.The main creative direction is realism, magical realism, metamodern, portrait painting and graphics. The works are in private collections of Ukraine, Lithuania, Kazakhstan, Russia, Germany, Sweden,Italy,Canada.
Member of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine.
Participated in 27 group and 3 personal exhibitions. The world which we live is made of color. Color is something that creates beauty, energy. It causes emotions, it includes feelings. I have always been fascinated by the color and form. By combining them together, we get unlimited possibilities for creating art. But the creation of art or painting in my case goes deeper than combining the two of them. It starts with emotion or feeling, and then "spat" on the canvas. Some of my paintings are impulsive, where inner emotion captures my brush, while others are trips that even surprise me. With my painting, I try to express how I see the world, and on an emotional level I communicate with the viewer, hoping to fix the moment on the canvas.The process of creating a picture for me is very meditative. The search for harmony of color and the creation of an ideal composition is very important. In my paintings, I try to convey the joy of being, a beautiful image arising from simple things, be it a person, a corner of nature, or a remembered dream. My inspirations are also my life experience, the work of other artists, events, people and places around me. Describing the style in which I work can be both complex and "mixed", for example, taking as a basis the style of realism, it modifies it in different pictures, adding surrealism or elements of the style of cubism, or even creating a mystical environment around realistic objects. My artistic quest has determined my comprehensive education. As a fashion designer, I declared myself in a series of paintings, where the girls are quite realistically depicted on the background of geometric planes, as if borrowed from paintings by Cubist painters. In my creative work there is a series of still lives - as a "replica" on the subject of Dutch and English classical still-life with the accompanying attributes: vases, glasses, fruits and flowers that appear on a deep dark background. All these objects and environments acquire their aura, glow, giving the viewer a kind of mystical realism. Elements of mysticism are butterflies, present in female images: "Psyche", "Princess", "Mermaid", "Oh, you Girl ...". These images, which are concise in their graphic completeness, attribute us to the metamodern style.
