Being an artist
Please give us a few words of introduction about yourself
Art has always been a part of my life. I specialize in oil paintings, in different themes: acts, portraits, nature, landscapes and abstract paintings that are always inspired from natural motifs.
When did you decide to pursue art as a career?
At the same time in which I decided to enroll at art school.
What training did you have?
Many years of practice and experience, research of new techniques, mix of classical techniques and research of new techniques and new ideas.
You and art
What feelings or reactions do you hope to arouse in people who view your work? Are you ever surprised by reactions that you get?
My latest paintings represent for the mostly women, accompanied by some elements of nature such as flowers, birds and butterflies. Thank to the fact that my works are very positive and decorative are mostly acquired and appreciated for the interior design. My works are born when my mind crosses the fine line between consciousness and sub-human consciousness.
From start to finish, how long does it take for you to create your work?
All the time which requires a good picture, as long as necessary to refine the techniques and the quality of a painting.
What music do you like to listen to when you work?
Depends from mine on the mood of the moment, without distinction love classical music and modern music!
Being inspired by art
Who (living or dead) inspires you? and why?
I am inspired from the subconscious, from the nature, the flowers, from fantastic characters.
What feelings, subjects or concepts inspire you as an artist?
Different feelings, different ideas.
What is your favourite work that you’ve produced so far and why?
As a artist I love all my works. All my paintings are important for me because they represent the way of my art, my experience and my ideas, each painting represents a step for me in my professional growth of my art and refinement of the technique by experimenting with new techniques.
