His work shows an impressive mastery of metaphorical and allegorical subjects, displaying both his dry humor and his bold approach to the figure in his vigorous and expressive work.

The object of my interest is a human being. Here I’ve been consistently continuing what I had started earlier. Depicting a man and his environment, I’ve been trying to introduce psychologism into my works, a certain special mood, with a help of embedded elements of allegory, absurdity and a tale. I’ve been solving these tasks in a form of a game, that along with expressive painting and a total emotional freedom has been creating inside of me incredible enjoyment from the creative process and giving me pleasure of my existence.
