I was born twice. First time it happened in a middle size regional center in Ukraine in 1990. There I went to school, graduated university and worked as a design engineer dreaming about life I read about from blogs. A life full of travelling and beauty. In 2013 I was reborn in Amsterdam when I abandoned my life in Ukraine and submerged into a new, breathtaking and open-minded environment. New version of me became much more courageous, adventurous and enthusiastic. I started painting, travelling, making friends all over the world. In 2013 I had created a collection of paintings called Black Amsterdam, which were even used for a design of T-shirts. Later on was founded my homepage. There I post my thoughts, new paintings and videos about things that inspire me. In 2014 I moved to Copenhagen, where I still stay now. Recently I held two exhibitions of my aquarelles with Danish landscapes. I think my mission is to discover the beauty and share it with others.
