What was the situation in which this photo was taken?

On that day I brought a new mirror in my room. I didn’t think about any photographs, but in one moment I was so tired and so bored, that I took my phone and started to take photographs. This photo was the best from that series.

Could you tell us something about what you do?

Now I’m studying at school, but my free time I spend on art.

How did you first become interested in art?

My mom enrolled me in my first art school, there I find art interesting, and now I’m going through my life with paints and canvas, and with the camera.

What do you enjoy most about what you do?

Feelings. I feel pleasure. I feel like I take a plane ✈ and fly up in the sky for thousands and thousands of kilometers up. Freeeeeeeedom.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m thinking about new projects. I want to do “free days”. People need just their own energy and their own condition. I want to show everybody their stories by photos of the soul.

What are the challenges in what you do, and how do you overcome them?

For many crazy ideas, I haven’t had the opportunities. This is killing me and my ideas, but mostly I found other ways of preparing these ideas.

Could you describe your personal style?

I can name my style as “freedom”. No limitations, in all senses. We can take for example my insta-blog. I will never have stylistics. I can’t show my life “only in white” or “only in black” color. I want to show it colorful and without limits.

What is your present state of mind?

I’m thinking about inspiration . That is now sorely lacking, inspiration.

What music are you listening to at the moment?

I like deep house like: Minimal Culture, Cheney, Weird Klyne. Post punk: Il Mio, Campo Buerak and some new waves like: Kiefer and some Cloud Rap.

Which artists or designers inspire you?

Sonya Esman – Blogger Nickie Zimov – Artist.

What is the purpose of art, in your view?

To show people that life is easier than they’re thinking. That all limits are in our mind.

How do you spend your free time?

Art, mostly, but meetings with friends is a good idea:)
