To draw is to create your second world, starting from what the eyes see, looking for harmony in lines and color, and walking towards this dream-harmony the way a donkey follows a tied carrot, and sometimes taking off like a blue bird and gaining the happiness of creative flight. Despite such a poetic pseudonym, my artistic life develops not in powdery pink colors, but in a variety of ways.

My favorite technique is pastel, combining the beauty of graphic lines and color for me. I love working from nature and rethinking what I saw in compositions, perhaps this can be defined as symbolism, because I consider only realistic sketches to be an intermediate stage for work. I know that the temperament of the artist is manifested in the works, I resigned myself to the fact that my most tender work will still look active, stormy in its inner content and mystical.

I was fortunate enough to study at two universities: in 1986 I graduated from the graphic arts faculty of Vitebsk State University, and at 2014 - Faculty of Graphic Design, Belarusian State Academy of Arts. I consider myself an artist of the Vitebsk school, I love and hopefully understand Chagall and Malevich.
