- About -

I have loved drawing since I was a kid and always knew art and creativity will have a special place in my life. I have studied interior design, did a course at my local art school and some courses in London when I relocated here from my native Estonia in 2007. I think of my works as passing and incomplete snapshots of our familiar world of everyday objects and situations. My art is an attempt to convey my idea that this world around is very much like a movie shown in front of our eyes. In particular, our modern Western way of life is but an endless stream of emotions, places and people we keep connecting with, downloading and uploading information similar to a mobile phone that might be connected to a Cloud. Reality presents itself in this fragmented, inconsistent way for which I use the word I borrowed from theatre (another form of art I am passionate about) - a scene. A scene in my drawing is exactly what it is - a specific setting with selection of characters, storyline and emotional charge. And as an artist I mainly see my job in tweaking objective reality ever so slightly to allow for my own weird view of things and certain dramatical tension that I like to introduce. As for subject matter, I am interested in several themes. Feelings of desperation and helplessness that are so symptomatic of our times are definitely main focus. Existentialism, personal issues around sex positivity, inner peace, emotional intelligence, authenticity and identity - the list is not exhaustive… Also, I have always been fascinated by our sexual desires and dark secrets, I believe them to be best insights into our psychology. Stay excited!
