Pedagogical conception provides for the development of convincing subjectivism and individualism of a Student on the basis of profound professional training, of realizing the principles of humanistic outlook and profound national ethnic and aesthetic essence.

Creative conception lies in fundamental research of different philosophy aspects of a chosen motif in heterogeneous spacious tectonic environment of a square as the most perfect and the most complete form; in realized leveling of a verge between real and abstract, sensory and associative; in minimalism of figurative means on condition of extreme distinction and equivalent attention to all levels of spacious environment; in visualization of not separate transient ideas but subconscious integral images composed in huge visual painting cycles and graphic series.

- works in the sphere of monumental and easel painting, graphics, video art, and photography.
