“I love improvisation, but I finish the pictures to micron. As a musician: he wrote a melody, and then it should be arranged, polished. And finally, everyone comes and exclaims: oh, what picture is ready. No, I say, here you need to draw with two thousand details. The man does not see this. But I see it. I seek perfection, and if I cannot achieve it, discomfort comes over me. This is a hell of a job. I write with great speed: dozens of strokes per second. I work in extreme ecstasy. Only in such a state do I manage to bring the work to my brand name so that it can be seen without a signature: this is a picture of Marchuk, and no more draws, ”says Ivan Marchuk about his work.
