His travels around the world and meeting different cultures have opened new creative horizons for the artist. Ivan's art is inspired by the grandeur and harmony of nature. The spiritual space he shares leads the viewer to a unique visual experience. The emotion leading in his work, he expresses in different areas of fine arts.

Creating fine art is an integral and intimate part of my life. I draw and model from an early age, as well as learn about the mystery of the world through this activity. For me, inspiration is created by the artist himself at work, and art is a way to understand and reveal the spiritual world of things. This is a noble mission, revealing new worlds and dimensions to humanity. Immersed in the vast space of art, we meet the dreams that give rise to our bright future. I headed to the monumental sculpture because it has the power to change the space through the language of art. For me, in this language, there was always something exalted and inexplicable. Something that has attracted and touched people for thousands of years. Understanding the language of art, we return to the knowledge of our own ancestors. Maybe because it carries the energy and information of humanity through time.
