- My art is predominantly based around surrealism, finely knitted with motives
which come out from the reach Macedonian tradition. My works unite the
techniques of realism of the old masters coupled with surrealistic elements
structured around our past, present and future. Most of my works are done in
oil on canvas, however I do endeavour to use my skills in producing icons on
wood done in the very best traditional Byzantine style; something that is
still present and well preserved in my country. I also do mix media works
staging both traditionalism and surrealism.
