“My creative life was divided into two halves. Graphic design and painting. These lives at the very beginning did not intersect in any way. And I felt split. It was very painful for me. I lived as if in two parallel planes of life. In that design life, I succeeded and was admitted to the Union of Designers of the USSR for posters, many of which were massively published in the Republic of Belarus. And all of them, as one, participated in exhibitions of republican significance and in various galleries. Many of them are now in private collections. And the second life was painful and difficult. I lived in it with disappointment and torment, in search of my own style. Many years passed before my two-parallel lives in art magically merged into their own special individual style, which I half-jokingly, half-seriously began to call "kissism", - from my last name Kisseleva. Graphic design with its formal elements and iconic symbolism, combined with the school of painting, led my individual understanding of art to create a recognizable author's style. This is the uniqueness of my art work”.
