What Igor says. All my life is creativity. Even in dream I draw the new pictures, I find new decisions, I think out a new reality.

It is difficult for me to prefer what either style or a direction. That is difficult to stop on what genre. All is interesting to me. In art for me there are no unknown zones or the closed doors. I can draw, paint or project, but from all I receive pleasure because that I do all, I do with all the heart.

I cannot live without my creativity of any day.
