    Art Description:

    This painting is part of the series "The Thousand and One Nights" that is inspired by cities I visited and I hope to visit again and stay there for longer times. I called it “Dating Valentina” after an event that can be fiction or non-fiction, that took place in East European city. Although, a very normal city, it felt like a garden of roses at that moment. I made the painting in August 2021.

    Medium Used: Oil on Canvas

    For me, creativity is a derivative of mode and ambience of painting sessions. I believe that, the character of a painting reflects the mode of the artist through brush strokes, texture and colour. I believe a painting has a life of its own that evolves during painting session. For me, a painting starts to take direction after I cover the canvas with paint. Then I start to solve many problems the painting has, until I end up with a painting that tells a story or delivers a statement. I consider the art of painting as the fastest way to record any artistic idea or to document a situation experienced by the artist as result of being in a given community. I am a believer in the famous saying - if you want to know how great a society is, look at its art.
