In Kaliningrad, Russia, I met an artist who is from Kaliningrad however lives and creates his sharp and rich on color and meaning artwork in Thailand.

Our meeting was brief so I’m not sure I can say something intelligible to Andrej’s person. On his profiles in social media I have discovered a quote (not sure if it’s his own words or if he quoted someone) which I might think tells something about him and his art:

“I’m a bipolar art student still trying to find the right medicine. That says a lot in itself I think. I spend way to much time thinking about – well, everything, and I like to spend a lot of time absorbed in my own little world, doing my art. I am very critical and easily annoyed with other people, and generally disdainful I think. But I do really enjoy some human contact from time to time”.

Here are some of Andrej’s paintings – oil, acrylic, mixed technique, enamel, charcoal, large-form paintings.
