About the work

The older I get, the more often images of my parents appear in my head. I don't know why this is happening. After all, I have already experienced both of them. They died at a fairly young age.
I would not call it a portrait, or even an attempt at a portrait. It is rather an image of the parents. This is what arises in me and seeks a way out.
A strange compositional decision allows us to understand that these are more memories of people than people themselves. That they are rather dead than alive. Retro style refers to the second half of the 20th century. When they were still young and I was a child.
This picture is a fragment of my memory.
I drew them on the back on purpose. Maybe someone else recognizes in these people their relatives or close people.
Maybe for someone this picture will be a reason to remember that we all have or have had parents. Just remember them.

About the artist

Most people loved drawing, when they were a child, but not everyone keep on later. I was lucky, because my interest in world around me became a profession. I think this is best profession in a whole world! Try to imagine — you can be at home all day and really enjoy of it! And sometimes this hobby can bring you a good money. Its a dream! I never was inspired by nature or some event , but always by people - their beauty, their reaction to events around. And of course colleagues - their work, their successes, their luck. Most of all I am inspired by the work of my colleagues. Probably, I have no sense of envy at all! This moment gives me 100% happiness and inspiration. I find strength in myself to be surprised. Because everything amazing is around us, you just need to open your eyes to see it.
