Based in: Izhevsk
I was born in the south of Siberia, in a mining town. My town is located between two mountain rivers, surrounded by beautiful taiga. thats why, it has never been a problem to find a wonderful place for painting. Since my early childhood I drew and I finally realized that this is my calling when i was about 14. Ten years of the university education gave me an excellent basis and the knowledge of basic techniques, but after I invented my own style. For many years I have been working as a graphic designer, my works won both Russian and international competitions. Nature, graphic design, emotions visualization are the three most important pictorial elements used in my abstract paintings. I am fascinated by the landscapes of Siberia: shapes, colors, textures that change with the season. But first of all, my paintings are my story. They reflect my feelings, movements of my soul, a kaleidoscope of emotions. In my works one can find something of his own, see a part of his life, recall a pleasant moment, feel emotions. Because this is the purpose of art. After all, our feelings are our "cocoon" woven from memories, important and insignificant events. Therefore, my works are a kind of encrypted diaries that need to be solved. I would like people to be interested in looking at them, finding a consealed meaning. With multiple layers of color and texture, I’d like to give each painting a different mood and depth - each painting is unique. I combine pictorial art and graphic design in my own way. I speak with love and trepidation about Degas and Manet, Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat. The symbiosis of different schools and techniques shaped me as an artist. I tend to use tight and dense application with glaze, to mix different textures and leaflets. I often work intuitively and spontaneously, without a complete clearence of where each part ends. And allow the creative process itself guide me.
