year of birth: 1991
Q1: When did you start making art?
5 years ago.
Q2: What does inspire you?
I don’t have any kind of unique sources of inspiration. Largely it is music, nature, and
everything that can evoke strong feelings and emotions. Most of these things are dark, melancholic and a bit weird.
Q3: What are your techniques?
I tell stories without any words through photo manipulation. I take a few images, retouch and transform them, and combine all of these parts together. It’s very important for me to be fully immersed in my work.
Q4: What is the main idea or feeling behind your works?
I try to capture in my artworks some thoughts and feelings so much as I can. Sometimes it is anxiety; sometimes it is peace or hope; and sometimes it’s quite something else. But I’m much more interested what do people see in my art.
Q5: What is the main color of your art and why?
I don’t have the main color. It depends on the idea, but I’m inclined to monochrome or cool shades. I feel comfortable with them.
Q6: What would you improve about your work and why?
I would like to improve the technique, details and expression. I want to become more productive. Also I want to experiment with the light and shadows.
Q7: Do you have any project for the future?
Of course, I have ideas for the near future.
Q8: Describe yourself with 3 words capturing the essence of LiliumEternal.
It’s quite a difficult question.
Q9: Show us (link) your very first work. Describe it from techniques till feelings.
It was a rainy November morning HERE. My favorite park, favourite season, favorite weather, favorite music in headphones, and the camera in my hands. I think I was happy at that moment and I needed to capture it. Now, when I’m looking at this photo, I distinctly remember every detail from that day. Maybe this photo isn’t so technically, but it still important for me as a memory, and as the beginning of my creative way.
Q10: What did change from your first work till now?
I create photo manipulations now. My skills are better and I work faster.
Q11: What is art for you? Escaping from reality or the essence of life?
Both. Art, whether it is a picture, music or movie, is an endless number of other worlds and there are millions of completely different human souls which I want to behold. How can’t help escaping from reality in that case?
Art is a good antidepressant and a way of self-giving; it is sincerity and honesty, so it is really magically, isn’t it? And generally, it is a breath of fresh air for me in this restless world.
