I'm a self-taught artist based in Hämeenlinna Finland.
I was born in Batumi, Georgia in 1982. Before starting an artist carrier, I´ve been working as a media-assistant and photographer. I´m creating abstract art mainly by using acrylics and alcohol inks.
For me - art becomes to way and method of recognizing the inner and outer reality, the way to recollect and recreate the Reality in my own way.
I started to paint in the year 2018. I felt like is something that I must do in my life. At this moment I work at my home studio.

My life as an artist starts only two years ago. I paint an abstract and my style is not really clear. My style can be defined as Abstract Expressionism or Modern Abstract, I think. I always searching for new colors, supplies, and ideas.

My technique is a kind of chaotic mix. I paint mostly with acrylics and I use everything that helps me to realize my vision, my idea. It can be a brush, pallet knife, paper, clingfilm, pastels, and even grass. I love to put some marks on the background, they work like some ideas or thoughts or mental constructions.

At the beginning of my journey, I painted just beautiful pictures. I´ve been working only with colors. But very fast I realized that just beauty and just colors by itself it's not enough for me as an artist. So I started to put some mental constructions on my painting by using some marks. Art has a huge therapeutic potential and I share with people my story about how art helped me to pass from the past and become a more free and self-confident person.
