How did you get acquainted with shadow theatre?

In 1975, I graduated from the State Academy of Fine Arts. I used to do painting and sculpture in those days, but I never classical painting on canvas. Listening to my inner voice, I always sought changes and metamorphoses. I used almost every material in my painting on sculpture and installations. Theatrical applications attracted my attention and I wanted to do paintings like theatre scenery. I continued doing work of this kind for a long time.
