It is time to share with you the BIG news around me! In this uncertain times and new Lockdown knocking on our doors this Thursday, I have decided to share with you what I have started working on during the Lockdown in April 2020. Here it is:
First, during the lockdown in April in which I followed the government rules super strict, I realized how much I miss nature and being surrounded by its beauty. It was spring and the nature was blooming! And my flat was just 3 min away from one of the most beautiful parks in London but I didn’t go there, I was following the guidance.
Second, I was missing nature so much that I started painting flowers without even thinking of using my knives to paint flowers. It happened so naturally on two canvases than I decided to keep going, keep working on this theme.

are painted ones.” Iri IR
Yes, I said knives! Yes, I didn’t use brushes as most artist do, I paint with knives, kitchen knives…I’m joking. J I apply oil paints with special knives for artists that look similar to kitchen knives but are more flexible. I stopped buying and using brushes long time ago since I discovered the existence of artists knives.
My compositions and color choice have deeper meaning than just painting flowers as objects. The bouquet of blue and blush tulips tells a story of “Chosen by Another” that often happens in real life. “Perfect Couple” illustrates the meaning of being in a beautiful relationship. “Hidden Lake” hides all of my deepest thoughts and desires but my Instagram profile reveals them all.
