"Metaphysical Mind - this is the closest definition for our art that we can suggest according to our personal experience of communication with our artworks. We agree that there is an architectural approach in the art we are doing. We are trying to catch a specific dynamic, to create unusual universe using unexpected combinations of oil and water color technique, of multilevel surface and clear line graphic. Different techniques and multidimensional forms compare each other in our attempt to get out from ordinary trite reality."
