CREATIVE MOTO

Life for me is like the sequence of paradoxes that define man’s fate, which is wrapped in the robe of social environment.
Birth and death do not depend on the will of the individual. It is beyond the limits of human abilities and understanding.
I have been interested in history since I was a little child. It was history that helped me to understand the background of that ceaseless performance where the same repetitive dramatic events take place. Only the characters change but different generations perform the same old play. Probably no one would be able to explain the essence of that play. The vulnerability of an individual might be embellished with the elements of irony or grotesque.
