I work with plasticine and camera, trying different textures, colors and forms – and different ways to photograph them. Some of them are inserted in water, some are frozen. Some are monochrome, some multicolored. The aim of each of this études is to learn as much I as can about materials I love so much.
Some work-in-progress images
Quick autobiographical note:
I live in Kyiv (yep, that's right way to write this city's name in English, not Kiev), Ukraine. I was trained as graphic artist at Graphic department of National Technical University in Kyiv and was graduated in 2007. I work as graphic designer and illustrator since 2005, and since 2012 I mostly use plasticine as main material. My areas are lettering, abstract illustration, patterns – and such experiments with form are fuel to my work. Also I teach how to make things like mine.
