ARTWORKS

As an artist and individual, I strive for equality, stability and sustainable life.

Going through the challenges of living in times of war, I feel the need to protect and showcase myself as an artist and do the same for Ukrainian culture and artists as a curator. I consider myself an ambassador of Ukrainian culture, in particular collage art. Creating art is, first of all, a conversation with myself. I listen, learn, negotiate with my inner child, and together we collaborate to create a work of art in the form of a collage, a photograph, a poem, or even a sensual mix of two tracks.

I work with issues of sensitivity, human rights, injustice, feminism, and the good and beautiful side of life. We live in uncertain times, and I believe that Art is an activity that will save the younger generation.
