"Now I come to a certain mythological component in my work, since the beginning of this year I have been constantly writing Sirins, birds from Russian mythology. For me they are like half-humans, half- birds, it's like a dream. Poets and many creators describe that they would like to have wings and fly, the Belarusian poet Maksim Bagdanovich has a poem "My soul is like a wild hawk." At the age of 13, I illustrated it for the first time, then it was close to my worldview and attitude. The image of Sirin "came" to me even at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, but then I thought to portray the scarlet burning birds flying over the mountain ridges without meat. Later, my thoughts and feelings changed, and I began to paint white Sirins, calm and peaceful, sometimes it seems to me that these creatures are similar to the Swan Princess from the painting by Mikhail Vrubel. Birds overcome vast spaces flying over different countries, they are a symbol of freedom and the destruction of borders, and a face-mask is a different person-person. For me, the scarlet Sirin is a kind of pandemic symbol, white with a light face - freedom. These are my personal symbols, or rather my personal mythology.
For me, art is the goal of my life, the transformation of the world through my works. The first thing I rely on is the beauty of nature, the beauty of landscapes, mountains, forests, fields ... With my art, I make a journey to transform a person, direct him to my roots and memories, to my secret self. A person should try to get away from the negative and the insured, in order to leave them and let go, like the reins of a person who has lost his mind ... I have been writing for many years on the topic of environmental safety, that is why I have done a series of works dedicated to the Chernobyl disaster that happened in April 1986 ..."
