light surrealism which is a bit different to what I usually create. first of all there are no characters and the art piece looks kind of transparent but it still gives a feeling of an ongoing event.

the landscape is flooded with the water from vase and makes everything alive and colorful, just as human makes the world around him full of meanings and feelings meanwhile the world itself is empty without it.

PANIC ROOM
Oil on canvas, 110x110
$

My main topic always was complexes and unsureness.

This work is from that series.

We see a very tender and beautiful ballerina training in a mirror room.

First reflection shows us her as a little girl who is being scared to see mentally traumatized and her future.

Second reflection is almost unseen and blurred because lady can't perceive herself as she really is.

Third reflection is fat, crooked and disgusting, this is how she feels inside.
CHOOSE LIFE
Oil on canvas, 120[80
$

This work was inspired by many things.

We live in a cruel world where some greedy bloody politicians may make decisions for you, but You have power to change it. I represented Berlin firstly because it is a city where the customer is from, secondly because it is a city of contrasts and famous for its underground culture.

As Mark Renton once said in Trainspotting: "Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers…"

So, chose fucking life! Live and control what you have and reach new and new levels


SOVIET HERITAGE
Oil on canvas, 80x80
$
1000
The idea of this painting came to me about a year ago. I was inspired by my grand father Minaev Evgeniy who was growing up in Kherson region.

When he was 4 years old Soviet Union made most part of Ukraine to suffer and die from hunger which was called 'Holodomor' genocide in History later. He survived, but unfortunately 5 of his brothers and sisters died. Little angels lost their lives for no reason.

When WW2 started, my grandfather was to young to go to army so he lived in occupied by nazis little town Olezhky and he admitted, at that time fascists where more polite with civilians than soviet police before.

When he turned 16 war red army already started pushing fascists back and all men older than 16 became a part of soviet army. So he fought and came right to Austria. And was shocked again - he saw that Europeans are not what soviet propaganda was telling about them. They where kind, smart and lived well.

My grandfather had interesting live with lots of tough tests made by soviet government. But I tenderly keep these things in my heart.

This story is same for billions of families and now is repeating again. In Bucha, Chernihiv, Mariupol and many other cities. Killed civilians, raped kids. And this is what I call 'soviet heritage' which like deathly shit is dying and dying and pulling thousands of lives to the death.

None of Ukrainians than and now don't want to be a part of 'russian world'. The whole generation was raised in Independent Ukraine, including me. And none of us don't want to have something common with this brutal, fatal and violent russian world.

They take our lives but they can't take our souls.

This artwork is dedicated to all killed people by Russians during last 100 years. And a reminder that we are strong, we have love and freedom in our hearts and none can break us.

ISOLATED

The main idea of this art piece is about the fact, that you could be very close to your dream. Literally stuck to it, but there is something you just can't have and hold. It just doesn't`t belong to you. But this is real life.
WELCOME TO MY HEAD
Oil on canvas, 100x100
$
1500
The name of this work says everything by itself. I was creating it after research in my consciousness. But everyone can find something common in it.

All these characters are not about fear and phobia it is about accepting your darkness and enjoying your individuality even if you keep something strange in your head and very unique in your personality.
YOUR OWN UNIVERSE
Oil on canvas, 110x110
$

We are constantly surrounded with triggers which can affect us depending on our responsiveness and self-assuredness, can lead our life and weigh our decisions, goals and all this process is about making choices. The deeper we look into our soul, analyze or listen to our close ones, depends on what or whose opinion is important for us, the happier we spend our life.

The gate is a kind of entrance to the desert - our calmness and comfort, absence of any anxiety, but some details still show us that there are rough moments even in this heaven, but everything there can be solved which is apposite to the front side of the gate where we see fire and absolute mess.

Saints are prototype of modern angels who are here to lead and care about main character, blond lady who is lying on the car and is very tired from constant pressure and stress. So what is next? Is she going to stay in this fire with everyone's opinion and assessments or step into mature life and write her own chapter? This is a choice which everyone should make once and forever.
BAMBOLÉO

$

This work is pure freedom of soul. It is never toо late to liberate yourself no matter how deep you've hidden it and how hard it seems to do. The word 'bamboléo' itself means to get free, to let yourself fly.

Above all nationalities I feel like exactly Mexicans' fire and energy shows that mad rhythm of the heart which can always bring you to life of fantasy and ecstasy.

Moment of happiness, bet you are able to seize it. Everyone dreams big and feels like 'the day will come', 'I will get the job', 'I will buy a house' etc, and this is what is going to make me happy for real. But the day I started this piece of art I was completely happy because of the Sun, the human next to me, tasty food, and cozy bed. The World has the same beauty every day, it just depends on your choice and feelings. And what I felt was pink and glitter. Catch the moment!

REBEL YELL
Oil on canvas, 90x100
Internal conflict is always the main source of inspiration for the greatest art. There can be a reason as fails in life, heartbreaks or addictions which affect your life. Your heart will sway because you felt something like that before. But at the moment of such dilemma we get this unique moment. The moment of living through every breath.

Here on the paintings are quotes of most iconic songs of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Depeche Mode and Robbie Williams. Although they are totally different their music and words are combined as complete text which reminds you about beauty of pain and that it always leads you to the happiness and peace.

DRINKING OCCASIONALLY
Oil on canvas, 90x70
$

What society considers as young, wild and free is usually just a binge drinking or drug addiction. Dangerous habit makes us weak and forces not only dreams, talents, capability to enjoy life and small things to melt slowly, but also to lose your face, body youth and beauty, individuality, which is most important. And what we are left with is rumpled body and face covered with bright makeup, dyed hair, brand new clothes and fake reality of social life. The painting tells not only about alcohol and drugs.

Tale old as time - opposites attract each other to become complete and perfect. Yin and Yang, he and she, you can call it whatever you want but none of these two is going to effect spectator as much as they do together (experimental style, unusual for me).
