About myself. I work in painting, performance, drawing, installation, object, combined technique, intermedia and documentation, I try video, photography, texts ... I am engaged in curatorial practices. I distinguish an element of importance of interest in my own work. The idea, the search for an idea, the conceptual nature of the project and its solution through the visual media and certain traditions of visual art.
The topics that I reveal, including ethnographic research, which is a powerful dominant in solving. The topic of time, the study of time, in which we have come to the point that we are investing in our time. Search for a person's identification. Political component. Critical Art. The topic of sport and sports in art, and art in the hands of the empires of the past and present. The joke theme. Finding myself and revealing myself.
Combining these many of my practices, there is a result of advancement on my way to art. With the start of my performance practice, I acquire a different form of my painting, it moves towards the painting action. While the last appear of canvases of the concupational nature, which are also the result of the performance, part of the idea and the project.
