What is creativity for me

There is a lot of selfishness in my paintings, I try to portray my own, – the best art is to give people the opportunity to immerse themselves in the object as much as possible. An artistic object gives a person the opportunity to immerse himself in himself, the object sets the rules, the rules form the flight of thought of the imagination, creating images and mood in the subconscious of a person.

Art changes over time, as a person changes, his consciousness and subconscious mind change, we are constantly moving towards futurism. Futurism comes every day, but we don’t notice it, someone lives in the past, someone lives in the future, someone tries to live in the present.

Therefore, contemporary art will always be only in the present. But it takes some time to consider it… see, analyze, evaluate. Therefore, the recognition of art will always be delayed.

I create paintings in such styles as abstractionism, surrealism, geometricism. All these styles can sometimes be intertwined in one work. But the main thing in my work is to convey the mood and generate a stream of information in your head.

A good abstract picture will always make you “think” and then you will be able to get answers to your questions. I believe that abstract and surreal paintings attract the gaze of modern people because they give the viewer the opportunity to “think”, the plot does not distract, his task is to immerse him in a state in which the observer can engage in introspection, go into mindfulness mode.

Painting, like music, affects the subconscious almost instantly
