“I left Russia 5 years ago” .
I go out onto the streets with my brush for a combination of reasons. First, to put something on canvas, to make brushes busy, to create. And the second, to make someone see it, join and try it. To feel how it is to be an artist. they will come, take a brush, take oil paint, spend two or three minutes but they will remember it. That’s what we all need, to get engaged more, to be together. the result will be important and significant not only for one person but for many. The same applies to Christchurch. Christchurch is a handmade city. Handmade chocolate, and factory made chocolate. they taste not the same right?”
