Based in: Design and painting
My name is Ivan, I also share my consciousness with the alter ego - Glebe Perfume. He is engaged in graphic design and illustration, I create in the material world by creating paintings on canvases, tattoos and clothes. We complement each other.
I was born in Samara, on the bank of the Volga River, not literally of course. I wasn't born alone, I have a twin brother, Victor. He is also an artist, but he devotes less time to this case.
I must have known from an early age what I wanted to do. I consciously remember my drawings since I was two years old. During my youth, my passion for art disappeared, but at the age of 17-18 I started creating again. I did not study at an art school or university. I finished high school, entered a technical college where I received education as an engineer and higher education institution, specializing in oil technology. I never worked in any education.
Now I'm 28 years old. I'm painting, but I don't like exhibitions, because I don't devote too much time to the commercial part of my art.
Sorry for my bad Eng. I promise to study!
I am inspired by loneliness. It's strange to hear, but in absolute loneliness I feel real, and creativity is a product born of the real me.
There are paintings that I sketch and paint (a draft), there are paintings that are born on canvas. I try to get to work when I am overwhelmed with feelings and emotions. Without them, creativity makes no sense.
Narcissism, randomness, color.

Don't listen to anybody.
I'm going to my parents' house, in the province on the banks of the Volga River.
