"To me the art is a way to convey information coming from God, the
Universe. And I go by this conviction. After classes, tired, I think about my teaching process and come to the conclusion that both me and the children are placed in a space that discovers the cosmic truth.
This very truth is reflected in their works and just because of this truth nothing can neither disturb, nor distract us - we just stay in this state.
After graduating the Academy of Fine Arts I longed to work at the studio-college in National Center of Aesthetics and it seemed I found there my own way yet I was convinced it is not possible to create anything new.
But then a kid who came for the first time to the studio painted an
incredible unique horse nobody did before, and I understood that
everyone of us is given information to be conducted to the audience.
Children excel at it. They are the pure fount, and their communication channel is open.
It is no mere chance that the Son of God said: "The kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.
Behold the children and learn from them"."
