Hello everyone,

 

I'm a visual artist conveying dramatic stories of sophisticated characters, their complex nature and urban lifestyles mostly through the media of photography with intentional symbolism in my artwork.

 

But please don’t label me as a photographer and don’t put me in a box of a particular field of photography. The purpose of my artworks and projects is to make an allegorical statement, not to adhere to some rule about consistency in lighting technique or tonal range. I want to tell a story, instead of just showing you what I can do.

 

Technically speaking I blend aesthetics of narrative and fashion photography with staged or actual urban settings, and sometimes with literary captions to create conceptual imagery of people or abstracts. I pay very careful attention to every single detail in the frame to ensure its strong symbolic role in the motif of my artworks. This results in fine art prints, albums, videos, exhibitions, art or entertainment events and other creative projects. Some people my works “photo-stills of imaginary movies where the protagonist is philosophy of unconditioned life.”

 

I prefer to deliver my artworks and projects “on-demand” satisfying the contemporary needs and curiosity of my audience through blending their desires with my idiosyncratic artistic expression.

 

The tagline RE-TITLE YOUR LIFE® summarizes my artist statement aimed at dismantling societal clichés and exposing individuals’ unique identities.

The idea of this statement originated from my first project (and now one of my ongoing practices) when I asked people to send me their titles, themes, thoughts, quotes or just single words that I turned into a photographic image. You can see these “titles” on my website grouped chronologically under “RE-TITLE YOUR LIFE”.

 

My muses are dissimilarities in cultures and sub-cultures, conflicting subconscious human drives, multilayered thinking and expanding awareness, sophistication, eccentricity and intensity, yet moderation in all aspects of life.

 

If you’re interested in collaborating with me on a creative project or in purchasing any of my artworks, please K.ONTACT me to discuss concrete aspects and conditions. And feel free to subscribe to my K.LOG, if you wish to read my thoughts, check out my contemporary works or comment.
