It was dancing that gave me an impulse to paint the human figure. I once watched “White Nights” with Mikhail Barysznikov, who danced to the music of Wysocki in a way that I made me watch the film five times. I thought that I would like to participate with him in what was going on there. The next day I started to paint in the studio, looking for the expression of the body that Barysznikow conveyed in his dance. Today I am fascinated by Sergei Polunin, and dance and movement are invariably present in my painting. The silhouette of a woman in my paintings is a person who carries all the problems of the world. Because in my paintings there are a lot of stories and content, and I hope it is noticeable.
