Q. Tell us about yourself and how you came to be an artist...

A. It's a bit ambitious to call myself an artist, despite I had been doing arts for over 25 years. My parents, being professional architects, have instilled love for arts in me. From an early age, I had been attending a kids' art studio. Then, I had been taking classes at an art school and studying at a University of Architecture, arts and crafts faculty. After graduation from the University, I attended a graduate school at the Lyon fashion institute. After graduation from the school, I had been working in the luxury fashion field. Despite my busy work schedule, arts and paining continue to play a very important role in my daily life. Arts is my passion and joy, and I dedicate every minute I can spare to it.

А. Culture certainly plays a huge role. It is unconsciously within us and manifests itself to one degree or another in every work.

 

Q. Silence or sound while creating? If sound, what?
