Artist statement:

Art is necessity. It is a way to think, to develop ideas and contemplate experience. Art has a power of deeper understanding, seeing things from different perspective. Trough art I explore the invisible boundary between outside world and human psyche. Moments, when mind and nature become united, powerful impulse of joy enables spontain expression.

Performing art I’m working on has two things for me. The first is the exploration of the movement itself, the cooperation of the body and the objects with which I work and the emotional expression. The second is the impact on the viewer, expressing the essence of one’s own human energy and giving it to others.

As a circus artist, I draw from the experience I have gained in studying dance and I try to keep this view even in circus disciplines. I had the opportunity to learn from different teachers and to see and experience these principles on myself. Every person we learn from us leaves a gentle touch and helps shape our final form. My biggest school in terms of performing is working on the street. As a street artist I’ve been dancing a lot of fireworks over the past few years. On the street, the artist has the opportunity to interact strongly with the environment. In the first place, your audience must “build” and then go ahead. Street work is actually about the relationship between me and the unknown, it is the opening of the pure energy accumulated in the form of skill and the story I want to give to others.

My passion for colors make my paintings vivid, pulsing in rhythm of universe.
Subject to my artworks varies from abstracted landscapes to abstract art.
Never-ending cycle of outer-inner inspiration gives endless possibilities of finding new forms. Art is also way of gratitude. Purpose of my artwork is to reveal others my inner vision, specific seeing of nature, precious moments of connection.
To share. To inspire and to allow to dream. To help others seeing beauty in difficult times. Give hope for well-being and good power.
