My works have emerged from a deep compassion and love for Ukrainian people. Without love, in my idea, this world is impossible. It sometimes frustrates me when what I am creating, gains such a strong political connotation, because that is not what I am talking about. What I try to communicate is that a man or a woman, when in love, is capable of miracles, and without love is capable of atrocity. This atrocity is what I illustrated at a particular moment. Unfortunately grief becomes a strong catalyst, and in a sense, inspires an artist; that is why every political revolution is followed by intellectual and artistic revolutions. Artists, I believe, can hardly invent anything on their own. Their mission in this world is to listen and to hear, to perceive and to represent. Everything that humans have invented, has always existed in one way or the other and was not created by us. That is why it would be correct to say that I only reflect what is going on in Ukrainian society, what hurts every Ukrainian heart and what chills the sole of any human. I believe that Ukraine has a great future, however I doubt that the road to this future would be easy. At some point I realized that every of us has a lot of work to do and that it has to be treated responsibly and even humbly to an extent. It is important to understand that the hardest and greatest work for all of us will start after the end of the active phase of protests. In my opinion Ukraine is ready for action, in spite of immaturity of many politicians in relation to Ukraine. We are already changing our reality and I am lucky to be a witness and a participant of this process. As long as I can, I will draw, because the mind will never be able to deliver more with words, than a heart can communicate with images.
