  • Biography
    For over fifteen years, I engaged in photography as a hobby. Numerous courses, plenty of film, many flash drives, and a lot of broken lenses. In 2015, I graduated from a photography academy, and my photos in the genre of "street photography" smoothly transitioned into abstraction. It was then that I realized the photo camera wasn't the sole means to capture my experiences. I began sketching my thoughts, abstractions that emerged before my eyes after walks with the camera. Pencil, tablet, brush, and oil. All of this led me to the contemporary art school, which I completed in 2017.

    An art curator is unlikely to label my flowers as contemporary art—they are decorative, beautiful, and devoid of a complex narrative. However, for me, my flowers are primarily a performative practice that allows me to visualize my feelings from the lived day. The form of colored patches, resembling flower petals, signifies clarity and openness to the viewer, while bold, vibrant transitions and combinations of pure colors convey the mood and inner dialogue that arise at the moment of locking eyes with the canvas.
