“Before every art exhibition, I’m so excited, as before an important boxing fight”, says Ivan. “I used to draw when I was a child, but somehow I didn’t take it seriously. Then I had been boxing for about 12 years and I was dreaming to become a professional boxer. And I achieved this goal. But injuries started bothering me. I had a broken arm, spent three months with a plaster. Then I had also an open fracture of the jaw. I underwent operations and a long recovery process. And at this moment I thought about my childhood passion and started painting, painting a lot”, told his personal story the Ukrainian painter.
“For me, the painting is as a wave of mood. The mood comes and I get a strong desire to paint, I just can’t stop myself. Then I put the canvas, and no matter what, I take my favorite red color and it all goes naturally by itself”, – says Ivan.
