"My art reflects the way I think and feel about essence of life on Earth. Everyday reality guides me on the path of searching and knowing about my emotional, spiritual, ancestral and social determinations. I'm telling a story about my perceptions and things, that can not be expressed verbally. There is a lot of symbolism in my motives, which I see as encoded divine message."
