 The main theme of my work now is portraits of dancers, musicians, beautiful women in retro costumes.

I like to combine real and abstract forms, to introduce understatement into my work. This makes the realistic portrait of a particular person universal. Such a portrait becomes a symbol of a certain mood and can become a part of any interior.

The favorite theme in my work is Argentine tango dancers. I have been dancing the tango for 13 years. It turned out that there are only a few artists who portray tango, and even less of those who know it from the inside. Therefore, my portraits of dancers are in demand in the huge international community of tango lovers.
