There are several options of presenting my work: the spaces of galleries, museums, including the
open-air ones, and the streets, the artwork in the city. Both have their aspects and positive sides. For
example, I have done several artworks in the “Sweater” gallery, in the big room and in the basement.
There is an opportunity to work in comfortable conditions. You can come, do what you want, spend
the time you want on it, draw it in details and all of that – in comfortable conditions, not in the street.
On the other hand, working in the street supposes completely different conditions, it is a work of
different character, and respectively the viewer is different. People, who come to the gallery, do it
intentionally, to see the exposition, to see your work. In the street, nobody guarantees you, that you
will be noticed. People go to the galleries with an aim to receive an experience or they have certain
expectations and they know where are they going, in the street – it is each person that you meet,
can be anyone. It is much more interesting to work there, because you meet a reaction there. The
most interesting thing is creating an artwork in the street, because the people that pass by react
mostly positively, some of them get involved in the process, some of them have a completely
negative reaction, because whatever you do, you are there and the complaints spoken out are
something like “Purple is the color of Satan, you are promoting Satanism here”. For example, one
time we were painting a fence in the Shorsa street and there was a bus driver, who brought us
something – chocolate bar – each time when he stopped at the the bus stop. He participated in the
process, because he liked what we were doing. He wanted to thank us somehow for that. At the
same time it was nice to realize that our work was noticed and some unforeseen, but pleasant
participants got enrolled.
