Creativity and work
According to the artist, in his works he depicts "the world around him, with its landscapes, sunsets and the sea, adding to it a little of his fantasy or nostalgia for what has disappeared irrevocably."
The artist says about Crimea:
"Crimea is a unique place of transforming world cultural and ethnic diversity into a special and unique Crimean Tatar culture. Crimea is our cradle. We live in Crimea, and Crimea lives in us, in our hearts and thoughts. All this suggests that it is on the shoulders of the young Crimean Tatar generation that there is a special responsibility that is beyond the reach of others."
