"Spring day in Berlin" (Special edition)

The Landscape was always interesting for me, it’s one of the main subject in my work. I like to observe the urban landscape - how the city grows, how it changes under the influence of modern time. I contemplate and try to express the moments that worry me with means of graphic. This work dedicated to my impression of traveling to Berlin.
I work with linocut technique, which is staying almost ten years my main and favorite. And after these years I still find new technical possibilities of this media which help me to show my ideas and to better communicate with my viewer.
