I am engaged in oil painting for 18 years, my style was born right after I finished Art College in Suzdal, and my first personal exhibition took place just two years after this. The art of painting for me — is an utterance, an appeal, a conversation. Color — is the thing that I set before. In my paintings I want to convey my own feelings and emotions, my impressions from the reality. I also play saxophone. I love free jazz and it is one of the main sources of my inspiration.
