  • Biography

    I’ve chosen the ancient technique of hot wax painting as my primary mode of expression. It has fascinating durability, the colours do not fade over time, they retain their vividness, and the surface never cracks. The self-made wax medium makes the images more physically resistant to scratches. I do not use oil or other paints when creating my encaustics.

    I consider myself as an abstract realist encaustic artist: abstract in the world of colour, realist in the world of form, symbolist in meaning. As a politically-minded painter, I’m interested in public life and social and economic processes. I present my particular vision in those works. The dreamlike compositions are my intuitive reflections on public issues. At the same time, seemingly astonishing, strange circumstances and inappropriate details on a rational sphere might evoke questions in the viewer. This attitude of mine acknowledges the importance of comprehending and sensing motivates me even in my works about architecture and nature. I show the details instead of the whole, sort of inviting the viewer to embrace and understand their surroundings.
