Inspiration has been with me since the time I can remember myself, and I have memories of myself from before the age of one. It is with me every second of my life.
One cannot make me do anything without My Inspiration.
Inspiration – it is like air, like the very necessity to breathe, to live, to exist, and to create. The process of creation requires complete concentration – there is only my object and my presence in it.
A large part of my Artwork is devoted to Esoteric and Extra-terrestrial Life.
Since childhood, studying the planets and constellations in the Moscow Planetarium, I was fascinated by intelligent life on other planets, began to visit with aliens dreams, visions of other galaxies.
The most of my Paintings I have seen in a my Night Dreams and Visions, with all the Details. I just have brought it to our physical world.
Sometimes I have only the theme of my new work. I look at the Empty Canvas, gazing on it for a long time, or meditating with closed eyes, and then I see a VISION it is all there already, I only bring It on this Painting. My Style can be called Mystical Realism .
And the same happens with sculpture. I find some rusted piece of metal, take it in my hands and . . . I begin to have a vision, it dawns upon me what it really is . . . for instance, a part of an angel’s wing, or pieces of monumental cosmic bird.
In easel painting, I mostly use an ancient glazing technique of applying layers of oil paint. A transparent coating of a fresh oil paint is applied over the well dried previous layer making pigments translucent and creating rich, glowing colors. With proper lighting, light travels inside through the layers and reflects from the surface through a prism of different shades of colors.
That creates an illusion of luminescence, but it is not only a physical illusion, it is also an energy (auric) luminescence. The more soul is put into a work, the stronger it becomes, there occurs an inner contact with the work. My work acquires the energy flowing through me. That is why my paintings glow from inside.
Using this technique with careful attention to details painting may take months, or even years to create high quality works of art.
In sculpture I use various techniques, such as welding, soldering, modeling, carving, followed by silver casting (and encrustation with precious stones), or bronze casting.
I also use specially treated Wood covered with Metal Patina, Silver or Gold sheets, wood combined with metal, as well as various modern materials and techniques.
