Odense N, Denmark
I was born in 1978 in the Far Eastern part of Russia, near the Chinese border. My parents comes from Ukraine, but my father was an officer in the Soviet army, therefor we often moved and I grew up far from the rest of the family In Ukraine. The interest in painting began already in my childhood, for a few years I went to arts school. Just before the Soviet Union collapsed, my family moved to Lviv, Ukraine, which is Ukraine's cultural capital with many artistic environments and educational institutions. Here I was educated as industrial designer / technician and worked many years in textile industry, both in Denmark and Ukraine. Aditionaly, I took many art classes of Danish and Russian artists, where I learnet different tecniques. Every painting is my whole life: all my experiences, all my knowlege and all my feelings. My inspiration comes from the movements and patterns I see in human relationships, and between people and nature.
