On most of the projects above, my responsibilities included creation of team of other professionals who cooperated on the project. As a first step I was to determine the severity of damage to paintings and walls, and an overall assessment of condition of object. Fix and preserve the existing remains of paintings and do a complete reconstruction of original decorative paintings.
On other projects for private clients, I always had to find the balance between the modern and tradition in decorative living spaces. The main goal was, to bring to the space tradition decorative paintings in modern way. Which was always a pleasure for me, to re-create and find the form which would be applicable and unifying the entire interior.
