I usually spend a lot of mental effort to come up with an idea and a plan for each art piece. However, I recently created an artwork that didn’t follow my usual routine and didn't have a sketch or a well-defined step by step for its creation.  Imagine the time when you were in a pure flow. That is not how I usually create my art, but once you step into this state, it feels so right, and it feels like it is coming straight from the depth of your soul. Associations and emotions that came to my mind while...

I occasionally photograph the family heirlooms of other people. And one of these heirlooms belongs to a friend of mine. I met him while we were exhibiting together at a pop-up photography exhibition in a local gallery. He told me a fascinating story about his family heirloom.

And this mascot was the only piece that he has got left from it. His dad turned 77 years this year, and my friend wanted...

I recently started working on my new photography art piece - Satrum tree. The main idea behind this artwork is to depict the magical properties of this very special and rare tree from the Extraordinary Plant Collection of Ranno 'o Astra.

It all started from an idea of a tree that can predict the future (you can find out more about...
