Boy with a Baby Wolf

1996, Oil on Canvas, Size: 20 x 16

I was born a nocturnal artist. During the night, everything appears different and even dangerous. Every new sound is an alarm signal, and inadvertently, you begin to take cautious steps like an animal. The wolf is an independent and self-reliant creature. I resemble him in many ways. Instead of a feeble lap dog, I am an invincible wolf – gathering food and protecting my territory to the death. Other dogs might growl at me, but they soon crawl away after sensing who is more physically powerful. The wolf is my kind of animal.
