I spent four years in Italy, at the Pontifical cultural research Center. I lived with religious people, and at the same time, I studied at the Pontifical Gregorian University. Before that, I traveled a lot to monasteries and churches in Russia, studying the culture, faith, and art of the Church, and I talked a lot with experienced Christians – priests, monks, and elders. All these impressions and knowledge I passed through myself and my heart. As a result, my paintings were born. It became very important for me to reflect on God and the origins of faith, to absorb the purity of ancient culture, and then Express it in colors, on canvases
