“Beauty will save the world”. These are the words of one of my favorite writers Dostoevsky. This is also my motto and my approach to the life and the art. Beauty, external as well as internal, is not the matter of fashion, it is about harmony, which is originally inherent in nature. We all got it from the Creator, we just do not all and do not always know how to see it. And the greatest mission of the Artist is to be the eyes of the others, to help the people to see and to feel the Beauty of the world. Each artist has different periods and shocks, about which he cannot remain silent, speaking out and sharing them with the others through his works. This is my way as well.”
“I am head over heels for this Sphynx cat. I am so sorry that many people consider this breed ugly. As a photographer I try to catch and show this tender and touching beauty, to help the audience open the admired eyes onto the beauty I see with my heart. My inner artist requires to constantly transfer this cat onto the canvases of different still life’s and stories. I'm just so happy to share it with the audience and the world!”
