Tetris represents a perfect blend of simplicity and complexity. The basic premise of the game – fitting falling shapes into a grid – is straightforward, yet the strategic depth and skill required to excel at it are immense.

In my art, I strive to capture the essence of Tetris – the sense of order and chaos, the constant flow of shapes, to make the thrill of a perfect line clear. Whether through traditional media such as painting and drawing, or through digital media like game art or animation, I explore the many facets of classic video games and how they impact popular culture.

I hope to not only pay tribute to this enduring and beloved game, but also to encourage others to appreciate the beauty and depth of Tetris and other video games. So, I mostly focus on Tetris in my art and try to portray it in a unique and interesting way.
