Сoncept for painting Post-Soviet period, wastelands, rethinking of landscape, computer graphics and overall digitalization, graffiti, introversion, exclusion, escapism, expeditions to abandoned areas with no people around. Long-term, systematic painting as a meditative and self-analytical process. I manage to make borderline art between photographic and picturesque media. It’s something between human and machine.
