ABOUT

Artist Statements

I am a Ukrainian visual artist who specializes in p conceptual imagery and also photo manipulations. From use of colour and surreality, I create a reality found only in my imagination. I explores the divide between darkness and light, unafraid to explore themes that others may find uncomfortable. I create my works in with the aim study of the ideological essence and forms of beauty in art, in nature and in life. 

My works feature an ambiguous narrative rich colors and surrealistic imagery merge to reveal the poetic roots of the works.The use of color is intentional and abstract; proportion and space are compositional rather than natural. I capture don’t moment, but ideas, with help of my camera and imagination. The goal is to convey a thought form, certain sense. In the end it all comes down to the fact that finding a way to photograph the impossible. 


Work process

High level of realism in work is always important to me. I want the viewer to feel that he is part of the scene. Light, scale and perspective are the key parts in a realistic combination of images. Understanding both photography and post-production is very important to make everything happen well. I always do everything by myself to fully control the end result. Idea, photography and post-production are connected. The final image doesn't get any better than the photos used to capture it. Just like photos don't get stronger than ideas.   


Commissioned project

I'm just as much a photographer as I am a retoucher, and it allows me to create almost anything you can imagine. Understanding each step gives complete control of the entire process from sketch to final image to ensure high quality realistic results. Creating an image in this way requires a lot of work and preparation to get a realistic result. I am open for collaboration. If you have a project, feel free to contact.
