Artist's statement

My artistic practice is based on an everyday life that surrounds me and usually starts with an attempt to draw a parallel between external factors and how they influence internal personality changes. I build my own system of coordinates while I capture different places and elements of the city. It helps me to understand my own identity. I work on the edge of traditional painting and new methods which combine different mediums such as photo printing, objects and installations. This helps me to make my statement clearer.
