Throughout my life, visual arts guided me like a compass, to explore myself and others.
I was born in 1986 in Central Asia and moved to Belgium in 2001.
At the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, I was trained as a painting conservator.
There is a certain feeling that creates a desire to express.
I love when I am affected by a fragment in everyday life.
It can be anything: A twisting branch of a tree, a dark cloud with light cracks, an object from my childhood, a love story, an old book with a special smell, burgundy color, prussian blue, payne's gray, a protagonist, a thought, a sketchbook from 20 years ago, Muddy Waters song and Old masters.
When I am working I am looking for a well-articulated method to represent each concept by using the visual language accordingly.
