What is art?
“After six years of studying at the Art University and the abandonment of a PhD in Art Production, it remains a challenging question to answer.
I perceive beauty much like any mortal, you would say. Yet, I can also capture the essence of a moment with a brush, pencil, or just my hands. Is that art? I cherish the outcome, and it pains me to part with my artwork. It has become a part of me, like a son.
Many may wonder why I create in various fields. It is unusual for artists to pursue diverse avenues simultaneously. I love everything I do, and it naturally emanates from within.
Perhaps it should be viewed as one of my characteristics stemming from a perpetual need for development, learning, and the desire to bring my ideas to life. And perhaps a touch of creative obsession, too.”
