Performing murals and collaborating with designers, sometimes the design project required large, monumental paintings rather than murals. Such projects were rare; - I happened to perform a similar one from 2011 to 2013. I painted a series of paintings for one of the mansions in Ryazan. The idea and plots of the paintings belong to the designer. At the same time, in addition to execution, I put my style of ornamentalism into some canvases. So, for example, huge canvases, more than two meters in size on the theme of "Zebra", are "woven" by me from tens of thousands of small ornaments drawn by me by hand. Paintings on the theme "Pegasus" and "Angel" are made in a realistic manner.

The main feature of the work for me in this order was the scale and unusual selection of the subject matter of the works. After two years the order was completed and all the paintings were hanging in their places, I saw how harmoniously the paintings fit into the unusual interior of the mansion. Taken together, all this looked mysterious, at the same time festive and at the same time mysterious. Mainly black and white interior design, peculiarities of its decoration, ceiling height, in some places reaching 8 meters; - all this created a unique, inimitable atmosphere.

Pictures of "Zebras", carrying a festive idea, are located on the walls of the living room, "Pegasus" has designed a fireplace room, which has a height from floor to ceiling of 8 meters. And the painting "Angel" found its place in the bedroom. Everything in the concept has acquired its own logic. Pictures in the interior created a special atmosphere, becoming a part of the life of the inhabitants of a large house and a large family.

During these two years, I was interrupted for a while, painted other pictures, but all this time for me this order was the "red thread". This is not the only mansion whose walls have been decorated with my paintings, there are several more families who have designed their inner space of home and life in this way. In other cases, I already did without the help of designers - these were families who simply collect my paintings ...
