“The source of my inspiration comes from the history of ancient era. I often read about the excavations of Heinrich Schliemann, Arthur John Evans and others who have found the most durable materials - bronze, ceramics and glass. Penetrating into the thoughts, perceptions and feelings, I try to connect those three together.”
Young yet already accomplished, he is a sculptor whose mentality, understanding of life, and style of expression are altogether unique. Possessing equal ability in very different media (techniques), he is able to find talented solutions by combining them.
