Bio

I am Ukrainian artist with medical diploma and an unlimited love for science, art and the human body.
In my practice I am driven by strong desire to reflect human’s nature and express important aspects of human life related to health, in order to inspire people for more conscious attitude to their bodies and their environment, since knowledge about human body and the influence of different factors on it can qualitatively improve a person's life and help to avoid many problems. It’s something like awareness campaign.
I started my career in art last summer (during lockdown in 2020), when I have realized that I want to become an artist for more than 20 years already and there won't be a perfect time.
My paintings are about human body, health (including mental), threatening environmental pollution, gender equality and my own feelings. My focus is more on the ideas and deep meaning rather than certain technique, so I use mixed media and non-art materials to express it in my artworks.
