My childhood room was full of art reproduction since I was five. The city apartment of my parents was packed with books, and among them stacks of art albums, which were stored in dusty piles close to my bed, for years. I went to sleep with images of the greatest paintings ever made, and with dreams to create others. I never doubted I would become an artist, because nothing could compare to that. Interestingly, eventually I did.

Painting is a mode of creative expression. I general, paintings can be naturalistic and representational, realistic (still life or landscape), abstract, narrative, symbolic (symbolist art), emotive (expressionism), or political in nature (artivism). As for me, most often I work in abstract portraits and symbolic expression.
Dry media paintings, or drawings, are drawn by hand with sticks or pencils, like pastel, graphite, charcoal, etc.
Artwork made using various inks, including sumi and ecological, and implements like fountain pens, technical, or parallel pens.
