At the first glance market series look like still life by Frans Snyders. That it is all about shiny apples and how beautiful green grapes look near blue plums. But it is not right. "Work at the market" was very important for me. I communicated with people there and I hope that their energy shows on the paintings. This is a special topic in Russia today. People who work at the markets today are mostly illegals from Caucasus surrounded by hostility. This is a different world. These people have interesting, unconventional lives which brought them to the North Market.
