"In 2012, I was approached by gallery-IDA (http://www.galerie-ida.com), where i was asked to create a tryptic in total size of 3 x 1 meter. Together with gallery owner - Dan, we talked about content of the works: flouting islands, dragons, organic matter, we shared ideas from Avatar movie, and much much more. When time came to digest and put all ideas out, on to paper - i was not sure how to start. It took me a lot of time to simply put the pencil on to such large sheet and dare to engage with such format. It was a big challenge for me, as i never worked on such a size, and i decided to do everything by hand - no digital help. In total, it took me three month to complete all 3 works. And here is a final results, as well and some little part of the process.
"The last few months of 2013 mark a turning point for my career as I am pivoting away from many of my traditional fantasy themes and video game work. I’ve made these paintings to create a stronger human connection to my audience."
