I have a really great passion to art and especially to painting, and it's not only words(i just want explain some aspects of my style and features of painting). So maybe my main point it's emotional painting. Actually I can name my style expressionism or impessionism. I like draw still-lifes, landscapes and portraits of course. My favorite artists are Chaim Soutine, Claude Monet, Frank Auerbach.
