Falling lessons

Plovdiv, Bulgaria 1992

Statement

The main topic in my works is the role of the human in the universe and modern society. I am interested in the defense mechanisms of the Self and the treatment of traumas. On the other hand, I am excited about the soul path based on esoteric teachings.

In my works, I mostly use painting, objects, and line. Pink is almost everywhere, as a leitmotif and in the sense of Escapism. In some cases, the theme sets the means of expression. My artistic language is decorative, and many of my works contain recurring characters and elements arranged in linear compositions. This artistic approach has a therapeutic effect for me.

When I research a question, I approach it unscientifically, intuitively, and fragmentarily. My leading sources and inspiration are social media, pop culture, some philosophical doctrines, popular science literature, and some branches of psychology. I take seriously the task of having fun while creating art. I do not strive to give universal solutions, but I still offer some solutions.
