Women's beauty inspires me again and again.
I come from Poltava, it is a cozy city in the central part of Ukraine, with a rich history.In 2009 I graduated from Poltava National Technical University. Y. Kondratyuk (PNTU), Faculty "Architectural", Specialty "Fine and decorative arts"There I was taught to create sculpture, graphics and painting.After graduating from university, in search of work, I moved to Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, where I still live.
Painting is my passion, when I start to paint a picture it is like meditation and music helps me in this.
I have two sisters and two cousins, and probably this is what taught me to appreciate female beauty. Everyone in our family is beautiful and each individuality. Among my two sisters, I am the younger one and I really liked to watch how my sisters change and mature, how they bloom like flowers and become more and more beautiful every day. But a woman is not only her beauty, it is also emotions of happiness and sadness, sexuality and sensuality, strength and passion, anger and even revenge. I like to watch how women move, how they laugh and talk, female plasticity is incredible. The main series of my paintings at the moment is "Dessert Girls", where in portraits I convey female beauty emphasized by desserts made of ice cream, fruits, berries and chocolate. But in my paintings you will also find seductive women with snakes and warrior women with swords. I love to praise women's beauty and I want to dedicate my artwork to it.
I like to work in the technique of old masters without using paint solvents, all my paintings are painted exclusively with oil.
For paintings, I use oil paints and canvases stretched on stretchers. I like to use pastel colors, especially blues and pinks, they remind me of the sky at sunset and go well with desserts. I also like the combination of deep blue, red and black colors, for me these are the colors of passion.
My favorite artists are Boris Vallejo and William-Adolphe Bouguereau and they left an imprint on my perception of female beauty. Usually, when I paint one picture, I'm already planning several more. I want to reveal to the world many small images of beautiful, passionate, gentle, strong, militant and even dangerous women. The purpose of my work is to give joy. I want people to smile while looking at my paintings, I want to make people happy and give positive emotions, because only kindness can save the world.
