The artist speaks about his attitude to creativity, "You should not doubt in "quality" of my works because each picture is created by me as if it was the last one, on the very edge of my artistic abilities, for art for me is not just a hobby, and not work, but the way of life, the Gift, granted to me by God, therefore, I just have no right to exchange it for various of life hassles, to give false priorities to temporary things - fees, attention of viewers, etc., but all these things are very quickly spent and forgotten, and the picture, if a part of soul is embedded in it, will live for ages. It is a simple truth, but, unfortunately, modern artists forget about it in a pursuit of the buyer, and therefore the art market stays in such sad condition, the authors are not in demand, and the connoisseurs of art do not find the one where the personal attitude of the artist to his creation is felt."
