ABOUT MY WORK
My work is produced mostly in acrylic. There is an influence base on modern art with Macedonian tradition, embroidery, ornaments and archaic symbols. Historical topics, frescoes an icon are driving inspiration in my art work. The use of old Cyrillic alphabet in my paintings has spiritual and aesthetic meaning. I mixed the classical method of painting with visual mediums collage, photos all styled in pure abstract forms.
My art work is characteristic abstract style with the simplicity and minimal expression.
