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

I think relying on your feelings, courage, the desire to find new approaches, the ability to observe well and peer into small details play an important role in creativity. Uncertainty and negative thoughts hinder him.

2. What is your favorite activity besides art?

I love cinema very much, I try to study more and increase my vision. I would advise «The Tree of Life» by Terrence Malick. Also, I'm constantly on headphones and listening to music, like «Baby Driver».

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? 

There were definitely life moments that once caused stormy emotions and feelings - I wanted to reflect them in my work. I think the flow of feelings is always positive in art. There is a place for both positive and negative emotions.

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

Since childhood, I dreamed of getting into the film «Midnight in Paris» by Woody Allen and meeting with brilliant writers, artists, philosophers of that time. Now I would like to talk to many filmmakers, to understand their thinking better — Stanley Kubrick, Takeshi Kitano, Paolo Sorrentino, Hitchcock, Paul Thomas and Wes Anderson...

I also recently came across a «Netflix» documentary about Jim Carrey in the movie «Man in the Moon»: it tells how the actor went crazy as comedian Andy Kaufman, and in real life he literally became him, forgetting himself. Interesting story and topic of conversation.

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

For me, art is a free space that I fill with my feelings. It calms.

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

Multi-format. A mixture of many techniques, approaches, styles. New ways and opportunities.

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

The NFT-community is very cool. Yes, I am planning various NFT-projects soon.

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

Something that has been mentioned many times. The senses. Love. I believe in it.
