My fantastic consists of combining things that could never have been joined together, due to chronological or geographical restraints. If I place Venus and Cupid and beside them a steel choke bore - that already touches the kind of fantastic that suits to me... ... I like to paint an angel eating cherries and having one mechanical arm... Or a doll with one hand in a shape of octopus' tentacle pointing at the board inscribed with "REMEMBER"; or a woman cleaning a ruined and filthy toilet, with a bucket and a scrubbing brush, wearing a red mask with a big nose on her face and a conical cap on her head; or a deserted city and an empty square under the strong noon sun, with huge tankers that ran ashore and beside them even bigger heads of children's dolls half buried in the send; or snails with human heads; or "Ship of Fools" sailing across a sea of bodies with fishes and bones falling the sky... Or elephants flying in formation, like an army of balloons, above a city inhabited with chess figures and leaden soldiers slowly being disbanded and scattered by seagulls. A soldier's medal fell off inscribed with "AMA NESCIRI" (prefer to stay unknown)...
