Project description

In my works I often portray the forest as a metaphor. Night is a time when the forest can be seen in all its beauty. The forest is a place of all kinds of danger, a refuge for spirits and demons, a traditional place where you can get lost. The little heroes of many legends and fairy tales are lost in the forest, who have to pass many tests on the way to initiation. The only solution to overcome problems is to feel like a fairy tale hero.
