As a native Eastern European artist who recently moved to the United States I found the most recent series of paintings influenced by the nature I was surrounded by since my childhood. Using vibrant colors and being drawn to bold and vibrant imagery is my signature. “When I paint green”, “it is not grass.” “When I put a blue,” “it is not the sky -Henri Matisse
I would like to say that the American environment influences my work greatly with its big sky, water and beautiful mountains. I am also collecting the inspiration from the past to the present with an overlap in which expressive graphical style I like to transform my own emotions in indefinite shapes. Nature is focus of the most recent series of my oil paintings that share common interest, which is vibrant variety of colors.
