I discovered engraving when I went to the École des Beaux-arts de Nancy. I soon recognised an opportunity to make the most of my taste for drawing and I rapidly became a ‘fan’. Engraving is a captivating artistic field with a wealth of various technical possibilities. What interests me in my work is the freedom to explore the endless options provided by drawing.
I was introduced to this means of expression later in life during a long period of convalescence. I had never really had an opportunity to get into photography; it was an art that I observed from a distance. I made the most of my time convalescing to get to grips with photography on my own by reading books and to practice, mainly through self-portraits.
I am from a post-Soviet country and this definitely has an impact on my works. However, I think that I try to combine current views on life (freedom, individualism) with those I was raised with.
