I like to create painting with a story behind. To give a deepness and volume to it. My painting is like a shot from a movie, which has beginning and prolongation. Memories of my soviet childhood, everyday situations, nature, people and books inspire me. I like when people find in my art something personal, what touches them emotionally and evoke certain memories.
