I do that what I do. My doing is mainly drawing, graphic-ing, painting.
I paint things I see around me and those I have in my mind and in my heart.
I do not reject long-standing subjects: nude, still life, landscape.
I am able to paint a picture very quickly but I create it very long, never from here to there.
When I am painting the picture there are nothing between me and my picture, only us both.
I am not keen on success or defeat.
I reject any “modishness” in art, patents, manifests, theories, art programs, strict rules.
In spite of the relativity of the term “Beauty” I deny mediocrity.
I create on my own risk and responsibility. I have continued it for 50 years being far from commercialism and “archipelagos” of art galleries and so called showrooms.
My ancestors in art – are the most and less important.
I consider creating as an equivalent to “living on my own”.
