Born: 1978

Hometown: Dnipro

Based in: Odessa

 

Born December 1, 1978 in the city of Dnipro.
I live and work in the city of Odessa.
The first works created in the early 1990s in a realistic style. In late 2000, carried away by symbolism.
I use the technique - gilding (board, levkas, gold)
In my works I explore the correspondences between the world of the hidden and the public, the unity and opposition of the sacred and the profane, life and death, chaos and the cosmos .. In search of a universal form for expressing one's ideas, analyzing christian, pagan, jewish and other symbols. My works are in private collections in Ukraine and abroad. My paintings are: in the Ukrainian State Museum "Odessa Museum of Western and Eastern Art" as well as in private collections.
