My paintings are my identity and life; that is the reason why my art may vary in so many ways. The events and struggles of my life are shown in my paintings: the death of my father, the birth of my daughter, September 11 to name a few.
When I paint my winter landscapes, I always think of how after my death I'll become a part of them as well, that they are my final point of destination.
Usually I work on large series of paintings. One of them is “Alice in Wonderland,” which I started to self-publish with my illustrations for “Alice in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass” when I came to Canada. The main idea of that series is the theme of “game”- cards, chess.
When I am busy with my art works, I am immersed in them, not in reality.
I can't repeat my paintings because I cannot live my life twice; as an artist and a human being I am constantly changing.
