From a recent visit: This is a direct quote in his own words:
"Basic subject of my creative-is people in the modern village. This is not accidentaly. I am born and grow in Panino village and now I not lose connects with my small motherland. There I have a lot of really friends. This is an amazing interesting people, they know the real price of the bread. Almost all of my creatures (creations) born in communication with them. In connection, close human.
From the meetings and impressions, watching for work of people, in this work, as I think, always have an element of celebration domestic, arising from deep connection this work and the nature, natures awakening, maturing, flowering, was born my conception of my painting "Initiation of Grain".
"I am not see life of village divided different landscape, different people and machine. I see always together and love this like artist-painter in the unity. But main always still, human, his plastical and soul beauty".
