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

Independence «from» and love «to» are the two best traits. Also, curiosity. They are definitely helpful.

Personal immaturity (weakness) interferes — and this is not a quality or characteristic.

2. What is your favorite activity besides art?

Procrastination and laziness, family and friends, sports and the study of ancient philosophical currents.

"The best artist is a child in whom there is neither fear, nor restrictions, nor faith in the stereotypes and rules of society."

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?

«Man is not made to be defeated. Man can be destroyed, but he cannot be defeated», — Hemingway says.

Such situations have happened and are happening now, it is impossible to create a strong personality without trials. Many trials forced me to take a couple of steps back, but it was the choices that had to be made in order to solve these problems that led my creativity to what it is now. With the images that it is filled with. I look forward to new challenges, difficulties and challenges to create truly impressive objects.

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

First on the list is Einstein. I'm sure he was a fascinating character, with his huge knowledge. I would talk with him on topics not related to physics and his theories, but simply in a friendly manner on the balcony, smoking tobacco and with a glass of zweigelt. A big mind brings too many worries, so I chose Albert. How he saw all this…

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

I believe that the world changes time, art is just a kick in the ass for every viewer in the direction of his/her affairs. A kick filled with motivation, emotions that make you move and feel again.

I am changed by the environment, which is interested in what I do. Involving new people with different thinking, different beliefs and views on reality, I learn by choosing what is close to me, and apply the knowledge gained in my work.

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

It exists as long as a person and his/her needs for food exist. But any long journey implies a halt. At some point, the society will stop to cook the fish soup on the coals, eat to the full, sleep and proceed further with renewed vigor, to the conquest of new heights.

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

I consider NFT a temporary phenomenon, like «Pokemon» in the 90s. True, there will be no chips, and the children will not play with them...

I plan and already take part — with a small project on «Binance». We’ve made one animated picture from a Nietzsche's canvas «Green Room». We are waiting for feedback.

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

In the world — it is necessary to stop when the time comes. Excessive passion deprives beauty. In life — curiosity for everything curious. In creativity — the courage to carry out the plan.
