About The Artwork

This is no ordinary bookshelf, as you may have initially thought. It is, in fact, a portrait - a reflection, a metaphor for one's life. It took me two years to create this masterpiece, so that anyone who sees it would understand that this bookshelf belongs to a solitary old man. It was collected over many years, in a haphazard, chaotic manner, and ultimately, it was something that nobody really needed. But it is alive. Ever since I was a child, I have loved home libraries. Whenever I enter a new home, the first thing I do is make my way to the bookshelf, assuming there is one. I assure you that spending half an hour in front of a bookshelf will reveal more about the owner than a day's worth of conversation. Bookshelves are not just filled with books. They are filled with everything that surrounds the owner. They reflect the owner's inner world, even if they are not consciously trying to do so. It just happens naturally. So I thought, why not suggest that you create your own portrait through your bookshelf? It could be quite entertaining. You don't need to limit yourself to what is currently on your bookshelf. You can imagine everything that could be there. Every book, every trinket. Create a melody. I will help you turn it into a song or an opera, depending on the extent of your imagination and your bank account. Your imagination is boundless, and the canvas is virtually limitless. Immerse yourself in this delightful experience.

All my life is creativity. Even in dream I draw the new pictures, I find new decisions, I think out a new reality. It is difficult for me to prefer what either style or a direction. That is difficult to stop on what genre. All is interesting to me. In art for me there are no unknown zones or the closed doors. I can draw, paint or project, but from all I receive pleasure because that I do all, I do with all the heart.I cannot live without my creativity of any day. My web site:
