The artist couple working in large format expressive bad painting is first and foremost interest in what enters their works on its own and with no self-censorship. Painting, unlike spoken word, allows honest self-expression and ways of seeing the world. At the same time, nothing can be hidden and the selected method of expression is only used to convey the desired topics and emotions in the best possible manner. The works use their own surreptitious language to speak about the circular pattern of life both on the larger and on the smaller scale. Every viewer can recognize something that is familiar to them.
