The most important thing in painting for me is beauty.
You can choose an awful subject, a tragedy, but you must try to paint a
picture plastically beautiful and expressive. This is quite a difficult
problem. But the more difficult the problem is, the more interesting it is to solve it.
I admire paintings of old masters. They contain everything that I like in painting
and that induce me to create.
When selecting a classical subject for a picture, I try to make a new,
modern interpretation. But at the same time I do not decline traditional
manner and technique of painting.
Besides figurative pictures, it is interesting for me to work with a still life,
a portrait, a landscape, and sometimes to make stained-glass windows and
wall-paintings. I think that it is boring to lock myself in one genre.
