I chose an unpopular object and way to show how concentrated people are on their own ideas of imperfections. Most of people never concentrate on others, but who really highlights our inferiority complex are we our selves, we live with it, we tell people about it and we are the only ones for whom it really matters.

I showed it in such artistic way to make people understand, that your imperfections are not even matter and you don't need to underestimate yourself or others.

OBLIVION

The painting shows the state of oblivion where characters are into their own emotions, fun or you even may call it agony. They are central objects and attention is pointed at them, so they are drawn hyperrealistically meanwhile everything around them is shown in opposite way - naive and crooked, so it underlines the importance of certain moment where you are concentrated on inner, not outer world.

The artwork is about subjective needs, priorities and goals for life. the meaning of existence is different for each of us (most popular are showed in bubbles) and all of them are ok unless it interferes someone's comfort, as bubble with the bloody communist, for example.
TIRED

Third year of full scale war at my home, third year of constant bombings, mental problems and fear for close ones who serve to Ukrainian army. feeling of being unable to forget it, to never recover from mental traumas and have carefree life and mind. sometimes it gets so bad I just want to cover my eyes and body with `pink tape` and never experience this life and memories.

pure flow of imagination and collected memories.
This work represents a unique style I have developed by myself, you won't find anything similar in any collection or gallery.
MEMORIES
Oil on canvas, 100x100

Imaginary inner world of memories formed by people and subjects which took significant place in our mind. Endless flow of emotions and feelings showed as waterfalls and then end up as a main character ‑ transparent soul, to whom this world belongs to.
Details like the bright Sun and clear sky show calmness and true peace. Trees have heart shaped leaves which show how much love we have inside.

Second piece of collection `Stolen` about Ukrainian emigrants who were forced to leave homes because of the war. Trying to assimilate into foreign culture but are desperate to go home.
This piece is presented as exaggerated and surreal character to show all the pain and tiredness who is put to typical American caffe.

DO NOT DISTURB
Oil on canvas, 50x50 cm
$
600
The painting is a reflection of how I feel the world and society at the moment. The inner part of art piece is full of water, which I interpret as emotions, comfort and love. Lots of little creatures that fly and pour the water are thoughts and new experiences which make it move = make me feel something different and new.
The outer part of the world is aggressive and persistent, trying to bring their rules, obsessive thoughts to my world.
This is why there are curtains that protect me from it.
Nevertheless the whole composition is beautiful, soft and dreamy, because I still find every part of this life as something unique and gorgeous, but I choose to filter everything before accepting it to myself.

Me, Myself & I

This work took me almost 4 months to finish. Just because mentally this art piece is very important and is my self-portrait. A huge bunch of feelings I tried to show through eyes, pose, the way I am dressed and background of course. The meaning of "No Signal" fond is that I am closed for external world's influence but at the same time I transmit my worries mixed with love and warmth.

The idea of lady with a burning piece of paper is always clear - she tries to bury and hide her wounds from the past. Every viewer finds him or herself here, someone would think that it is a burning picture with her ex, who betrayed her. You may also think that it is a paper from doctor with fatal diagnosis. Details depends on your fantasy, but the fact is common for everyone - when it hurts we need to be strong and leave it in past.
I LOVE MYSELF

Social media, books, influencers - everyone teaches you how to 'love yourself'. Most people don't take these words seriously and consider this in a way of buying expensive clothes, plastic surgeries, fancy restaurants and clubs, but in the end, we don't find peace with ourselves, so the moment when we stay all alone we don't enjoy our company, we are searching for happiness ending self-destruction.

At the same time, our society imposes, so many behavior standards and fashion that people with unstable mental health can't bear this, so they feel uncomfortable and unnecessary. They just don't fit in this world. So many girls and boys can't see their spiritual and natural beauty and even butterfly seems as dung fly in the mirror.
NO SIGNAL

$

Common feelings such as loneliness, emptiness, rejection of reality, which we can have caused by lots of reasons. It is a consequence of toxic love. You can read everything from painting without words.
