The artist works with the found objects in the author's technique. The artist scratches images from his fantasy pantheon, the formation of which was influenced by the passion for the Old Believer popular print. The canvases for the images are the doors of old wardrobes, the worn out jackets of friends and toys abandoned by grown-up children. It is important for the author to preserve and preserve the memory of everyday things, to give them a second life.
