Since my graduation (year 2005) I started to call most of my multi-layered artworks “rewritten spaces”, and I have also referred to them as “collages of thoughts” and “inner landscapes”, which points their connection with subconscious matter, intuition, interior world. My creative process is a way of self-discovery. It is based on being at the moment, on impulsive spontaneity. I never conceptualize in detail my work before starting nor prepare a sketch of it. I choose to work in improvisation manner, as it correlates well with my way of thinking and traits of my personality. I let myself to be inspired further by each element or layer painted (or printed), to come across new decisions about the further arrangement of the art piece in the midst of the process. My art is open to various interpretations and aims to evoke in each spectator individual connotations and sensations.

From 2019 I have focused more on less figurative approach in painting, I have started to feature various levels of abstraction from semi-representational to totally abstract, and I have rediscovered my passion for textures and coincidence in the creation practice.

Formally I am inclined to create pieces that are rich in means of expression: drawn lines, typography, handwriting, textures, patches, splashes, scratches or imperfections, organic and geometrical forms and patterns — everything placed on surface of vibrant or matching color, where all elements, and therefore meanings, complement each other constituting the unique space. The final formal outcome is a sort of experimental eclecticism.
