What is a nebula? Almost everyone at least once in their lives saw in a book an image of a nebula - huge spirals, various swirls and clouds, but in the sky, alas, it is impossible to see such a thing. The very word “Nebula” appeared due to the fact that these spirals and turbulences reminded astronomers of the spots of fog when they were observed through weak telescopes. There are two main classes of nebulae - galactic and extragalactic.
The Milky Way is one of such galactic nebulae that exist in our galaxy.
The Andromeda Nebula is the brightest, most extensive and closest nebula to Earth. From it comes light 1.5 billion times more than our Sun emits!

ALL WE ARE FROM SPACE
We are all from space, we are all from childhood. Each of us once sat and looked at the stars, into this dark abyss with twinkling stars. Asked various questions. In my family, very often there was talk about the importance of the development of space technologies, and I, as an artist, continue to worry about the development of science and technology. Inspired by the cosmos, in which there is a lot of unknown to mankind, I want to encourage society to pay attention to science and modern technology. In the description of the work I like to write scientific facts about the planet, I believe that art should also have the function of enlightenment, to allow a person to learn new things. It seems important to me to pay attention to space. Because, a person, looking at the images of other planets, also thinks about the Earth, realizing that it is necessary to take care of it, because it is unique and we have only one planet like the Earth . . I like to use non-standard formats of work, for example, round. A series of works devoted to space, over 10 works: MARS, MOON, NEPTUNE, JUPITER, SUN, PLUTO, MERCURY, URANUS, NEBULA . The work was performed in various techniques, natural gallery canvases, oil, and acrylic. Work size in diameters from 80 to 110 cm. . Further in the descriptions various interesting facts, like descriptions of my works.
