Q1: When did you start making art?
I think in my deep childhood. Then it was a drawings on wallpapers, now – computer graphics and photography.

Q2: What does inspire you?
Every thing what I see around me can bring me inspiration.
Nature, music, undoubtedly visual art, people, politics, ecology and world problems, problems of the relationship between the creator and the world.

Q3: What are your techniques?
I do not lie if I say that I can do, if not all, very much. I just need to have a reason to do it. But mostly I prefer to work with computer graphics (photomanipulation and digital painting), photography, design of costumes, accessories and locations.

Q4: What is the main idea or feeling behind your works?
In general I’m showing the dark side of life. Not always straight, increasingly under a bright or cute shell. Also, I do illustrations for tales, myths and legends. Free interpretations of the mythical beings.

Q5: What is the main color of your art and why?
I have no favorite color. Every one of them is really beautiful. I can’t wait to use them all in my works!

Q6: What would you improve about your work and why?
My english *laughs*
And honestly, what will be will be. I do not have a specific goal. But one thing I know for sure I’m not going to stand still.

Q7: Do you have any project for the future?
I can make new projects every day. I have a lot of ideas, but not so much time.
This year I plan to continue the work series already begun: “Rotten fruit”, “7 deadly sins”, photoproject “Exorcism” and new surrealistic compositions is waiting for me 🙂

Q8: Describe yourself with 3 words capturing the essence of ilona-veresk.

1- Aspiration
2- Creativity
3- Kindness

Q9: Show us (link) your very first work. Describe it from techniques till feelings.
My really first work was lost. But i have a reeeeaaallyyy long and informative article HERE
Only on Russian, sorry. Later i will translate it, but now you can use a google translator or something like this.

Q10: What did change from your first work till now?
I think all, including me.

Q11: What is art for you? Escaping from reality or the essence of life?
Not the first and not the second. Art – timeless huge web, linking thousands of generations. I’m just a small spider on this web. Or at least consider myself such.
