1. What personality traits help an artist to make art, and which ones hinder?

The artist is helped by the fact that he is engaged in art — his interest in creativity and constant craving for research. This applies to every area of life.

If you have the qualities that I mentioned above, nothing will stop you from making art. Including resistance — both outside and inside you. All this is a process. Any resistance reinforces the initial impulse if you have an unbending intent.

2. What is your favorite activity besides art?

I like to listen to various kinds of music and to delve into genres, their origins and directions. This is probably the longest-running hobby since high school.

3. Did you have a situation in your life that influenced your creativity positively/negatively? Or has it changed the way you think about what you do?

I was lucky,I met a wonderful teacher at an art school. This person answered «yes» to my creative expressions. The road for self-expression, opened since childhood, energizes you for many years to come.

"It is important for an artist to realize that there is no negative impact on creativity as long as he intends to be an artist. Everything that happens to me is my creative path, which I am able to turn into art."

4. Who would you like to talk to from the personalities who have ever lived or are living now? Why with this person?

An interesting topic, but I have enough for the conversations of those people who surround me or meet on the way.

5. How does your art change the world, the cultural component, yourself?

Perhaps art has the ability to bring changes due to the fact that it itself is a concentrate of many psychophysical processes. One way or another, I am looking for ways in which I could interact with my contemporary viewer, referring to different levels of his consciousness. Change is happening in both directions. It's an endless recursion with recall points changing the branch of rapport.

Art has the ability to unite and open. In the process of getting to know art, a person can realize that creativity is also present in the viewer himself. This will release the impulses dormant in him and open the way to interaction with the world.

"For me, doing art is a path to self-knowledge through which I understand the world."

6. What do you think about the future of contemporary art?

Contemporary art has the same future as classical art — it is the transformation and change of cultural codes. Contemporary art will meet new technologies and introduce them into the creative process. Freedom of representation will bring us even closer to understanding the phenomenon of human consciousness.

7. What do you think about the rapidly growing NFT? Are you planning to enter this niche?

NFT is an example of a new technology entering the art. Now this is a fairly new niche, its merger with the usual forms of art is still in the process of development. But very soon NFT technology will create its own stylistic and formal language, just as it did with photography, video art and digital painting.

8. What is the most valuable thing for you (in the world, in life, in creativity)?

Freedom of perception. And it is possible in the case when I remember that all reactions come from me. I am the source of what I feel.

In creativity, what is valuable for me is that it allows you to develop.
