The painting is a participant in the International Exhibition organized by the Swiss gallery HelvetArt (June 2021), category "Honorable Mentions". The painting is a participant of the International exhibition "Prism II", Envision Arts gallery ( September 2021) _____ At first, I had the idea to paint a mountain with a snow-covered top and with reflections of the setting sun on it and a lake stretching below. Almost from the very beginning, everything “went wrong”. I painted clouds -colorful, magical, and multi-colored. However, when I started to paint a mountain the feeling strange appeared that I was acting against myself, against my inner train of thought. In fact I want to express something different. I realized that I do not want to paint just a mountain landscape. I want the mountain to become the personification of the inner inspiring stream that flows in every person. However, I stubbornly resisted this thought. After all, initially I decided that I would simply write a mountain with its reflection in the lake (or just a mountain landscape). With this conviction, I almost finished the picture. Nevertheless, the picture turned out to be empty and alien to me. The unspokenness remained in my soul. Before writing pictures, I always tell myself that I should only follow my inner impulses, which visit at this very moment that I should not be constrained by frames. Moreover, having drowned out my true flows of inspiration in myself, at the exit I received an “empty” canvas. So what did I do? I brushed off most of the painting and started over. This time, following only your inner voice and spiritual impulses. Now when I was stumped and did not know how to continue, I went out onto the balcony and looked at the clouds for a long time. The path and further actions loomed themselves. Therefore the painting "Inspiration" is primarily about creative revelation and the power of the inspiring flow. That art is sometimes created not by sight, but by feelings and faith. This picture also reflects my creative path, those internal confrontations that I faced and, in the end, the liberation from conventions and the victory over them of the inner inspiring force.

Expressionist Artist. I capture emotions through images of natural phenomena. I'm sweeping away the despondency with a brush and creating an impression with the energy of color. __________ I always noticed changing and elusive beauty of natural phenomena. Since early years I was interested in painting and used it as implementation tool of imagination in composing magic-augmented reality. I saw original stories in ordinary casual objects, that other people consider insignificant. At one point of my life I lost interest in painting. This happened after I graduated from the art school where I spent 5-year studying quite ingrained and conditional rules of “how to paint and what to paint”. Such statutory approach turned off the flow of “out-of-the-box” ideas and brought neither joy nor satisfaction. I studied art, but not daring to create anything myself. I came back to painting later on after realizing the importance of walking own path. While I was studying at the art school, I discovered my passion to work in expressionism and impressionism styles. Allusive pictures were way more mesmerizing than ones rendered with photographic precision. My goal was to create convention free art, forcing viewer's imagination to work towards the essence of the phenomenon represented in the picture. Therefore I began to paint vivid and colorful landscapes, depicting emotions and impressions, that allowed the viewer to be frozen in them and recall some kind of the intimate memory over and over. My art is for emotionally sensitive people. I get inspired by natural phenomena and, having guided through the prism of my imagination, I capture them on canvas with the help of oil paints, endowing with unreal, magical properties. I pay special attention to the versatility of color, contrast and bright accents. I fill the space of the picture with emotional, dynamic power through dynamic strokes with brush and palette knife. In my work I try to convey the sensuality, transience and originality of natural phenomena.
