I started working on The Good Machinery as an outlet other then my painting&designing activity, which turned out to be another completely crazy painting&designing activity!
I have always messed in fashion business, working for different clients, spacing from clean masculine fashion line to extravagant female accessories, to stop in between by drawing&painting on animal figurines.
The basics of the Strange Planet figurines started by the end of 2009.
For how this story may seem light, actually, painting these figurines is quite a tough business.It requires patience, knowing the resins, additions, pigments and their proportions and besides if you fail in one coloring passage this means you'll have to redo it all from the beginning.And by that I mean taking all the layers off and redoing them from the beginning.Quite a job.That I love.
The Asphalt series started in summer 2013.
Resins give me freedom to do what I believe know best which is playing with colours.
I’ve always had an intense love affair with color. It started in childhood in my grandmother’s kitchen, where she collected discarded pieces of wool in a credenza. The scraps were discarded for their “ugly” colors, but they were cheap and that’s what she could afford. Each of the cardigans, blankets and shawls she made from them were amazing works of art. She combined ideas and colors that seemingly wouldn’t get along; it was both intimidating and exciting. My main purpose with Asphalt Series is to simply reuse this idea of non ugliness of objects and propose it with the contemporary twist.
At least 15-20% of annual income of T/GM goes to charities. More informations about this to come soon.
