Art belongs to everyone, not just some so-called, good connoisseurs.
For many times I have been told, roughly – I do not much understand painting, but I like your paintings very much.
Everyone who owns a life and who feels their senses understands painting.
I do not want to paint anything that any phone or camera can do better than I do, I only paint what no computer as well as no device will ever be able to achieve. I paint pure emotion.”
