The aim of my art is to draw viewers attention to different actual problems with help of provocative art. This scene of “Pieta” shows how Virgin Mary with a blunt object in her mouth sits with Jesus on her knees who is dying because of heroin overdose. Provoking must make people think about how true can be in what they believe. Why can’t my painting be as true as the images on the icons, or does it still make sense to believe in something we can’t evidence?

I’m a young artist. I follow my own views and art style, but all of it are connected with provocation. I think that provocative art is the most effective way to draw attention to actual social problems as racism, religion and others. I’m sure that young generation understands and sees those problems better than others and they must show their experience via the art.
