“My name is Victor Timofeev, and these are some of my drawings. I started drawing when I got injured three years ago. Alone with a lot of newfound free time, I picked up a pen and pencil and started sketching. The images evoked were always on the dark side, only because my soul was full of negative energy I needed to release. The process of creation became therapeutic, as well as a daily necessity. Looking back, I am almost glad I got hurt and discovered this new life. Everything happens for a reason, right?”

Art happens. It happens by chance, by mistake, by wish, by sorrow, by extreme anger. Victor Timofeev‘s art happened to be by this last one. Not long ago, Timofeev found himself drawing after a dreadful skateboard accident. He subjected the event and its after effects in his art, reflecting all his inside frustrations and thrust. He had his red-black period, yet in time he got to incorporate architectural geometry patterns with sprayful, illustrative illusions. They sum up to create a an obsessive poetry on paper. Likewise, in his early works he used text repeatedly, as obsessive, to create a background pattern. He has his times for his colors.
