What is the best thing that I love about my work?

Best thing of loving my art and the process of doing it is I am exploring my own inner world. it’s a journey what keeps me happy and cherring me up. magacaly lost in a moment of dicovery. Beautifully confusing and the great moment when I do realize that I’m sharing my own world to the others. I am making it able to others to travel with me to another galaxies and unexplored worlds. this trip calling – ART. imagine, I can fly sometimes and with my art I can make you fly too, reaching heighest points. every inch of my art is addictive, impossible explosions and magical realism and sharing something special, magical and unique worth to live.

What is my idea of happiness?

Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. no one saying that life is easy, you choosing what side you will stand for. You creating your own happines with people who suround you. Provide love and carring – is the first step for your happiness. seeing smile on faces of beloved ones is happiness. So, love the people who treats you rigth and forgive the ones who – don’t. Tell jokes, smile, have a great time and everybody will think that you’re happiest person they know and one day it becomes true. life is perfect. your one smile can change someone’s day, can save frienship. So – SMILE, do it often. don’t be scared of doing new steps in your life, life is too short and in the end we will regret about lot of things what we didn’t done. Do what makes you happy. stop swallowing your words. speak out. wear what you want to wear. Stop thinking what other people think. listen to the music. play it loud. go out for a drive at midnight. stop waiting for miracle – create it your own. sometimes we believe that all those beautiful stories from movies were reflection of the world we were meant to live, so make it real. live now. be kind. “make love not war”.
