"The principle of my drawing is similar to photographing lightnings during a thunderstorm. I am catching the emergence of thought at the moment when it is not manifestated yet its form of expression – either verbal or visual. This suggests quick linear drawing without corrections accompanied by text which appears simultaneously with the drawing."

 
Мой принцип рисования похож на фотографирование молний во время грозы. Я наблюдаю за возникновением мысли, и стараюсь зафиксировать её в тот момент, когда она ещё не выбрала форму своего выражения – зрительную или языковую. Это предполагает быстрый линейный рисунок без исправлений, сопровождающийся возникшим одновременно с рисунком текстом.
