"Creativity as evidence of spirituality." - Tsiupko
"My inspiration is not a form. The form is just a result. It is hard for me to track and to try to understand the creative process of that or another form. I'm lead by something which I'm unable to express with mere words. I give no specific importance to either form of expression." -Tziupko
