ARTIST STATEMENT

Violating principles of aesthetics and composition does not necessarily add anything to the value of an artwork.
My entire life is heavily influenced by Heavy and Death Metal music. Also I am a big fan of sci fi movies, but I always try to avoid any direct influence by that.
I am totally against the indigent types of art and artist presentation in social media. A great artwork must shine by itself alone.
Darkness and blackness are more attractive and mysterious than light and brightness, and they have more unspeakable and exciting secrets in their heart, like a black hole that no one knows about its content.
