Being a painter isn't just being a hard working craftsman and an artist but also a bit of a creator. By taking scenes from our world and transforming them to art, an artist changes a reality as he sees it. If it's only by adding different colours, dots instead of stones or making just a few touches of his brush, the painter creates his own universe, where he and only he has absolute power. Moving a building or placing palms where I see them, allows me to give a viewer a glimpse inside my artistic soul and making it visible to others - surprising not only them but often myself. I'm also just a viewer of my own creation.
