White borders around the paintings is a silk mounting, it is a part of painting. This is a traditional way in Asia for mounting and finishing paintings. Widely seen and know in museums with Chinese scrolls and paintings. It is a unique technic and could be done only in Asia, as I was living in Hong Kong for 4,5 years while was studying Chinese painting and calligraphy I made a connection with masters who are doing this for me. Currently living in London, as soon as my painting finished I send it to Hong Kong for this special mounting as it ads texture, unique beauty, holds tradition and add sense of delicacy and finishing. I also love that in a result it is a mix of East and West technics, abstract paintings with traditional for calligraphy inks and papers.
My work is about patterns in the world around us, finding abstractions in the complex and complexity in the apparently simple, and about repetition/universality and singularity/now.

___________________________________

This series of works developed from a series of experiments with form and geometry - the cumulative effect of many small changes in colour and orientation, the convergence of almost parallel lines, the perception of space around a dense form, the interaction of curves and lines.

Experimenting with new techniques, an artist inevitably creates unexpected connections, allusions and implications - some surprising, some so apparently logical as to be almost self-evident. In these works people have found many things which were previously invisible to me. For example palm trees - the most evocative of plants, with its simple form once multiplied creating incredibly complex patterns, and its multiplicity of allusions from the jungle to the beach to the damp, rusting palm houses of the botanic gardens of Europe - or Malevich's figures of peasants and peasant women. Maybe they were there, maybe they are there now, maybe they are not there.

Artist Profile

Born: 1986

Hometown: Astrakhan

Based in: London

I was born in 1986, live and work in London. Abstract painter and printmaker. My works has been shown in number number of solo, group show and Art Fairs such as Fine Art Asia Hong Kong 2019, PAD London 2018, Winter Show 2018, LA Art Show 2018, Affordable Art Fair London Battersea, Hampstead, Hamburg 2019-2020, The Auction Collective exhibition and auctions 2019 - 2020, Paul Smith, Mayfair 2019 - 2020 and others.
I was graduated from Pianoforte school same time as my Art College and music was and still is a great inspiration for me, striating from aesthetic of musical sheets, which years later become major inspiration for series Reeds on a Lake to music itself.
Beauty, delicacy and same time strong power of nature these what I am in constant try to represent and capture and are my main source of inspiration and joy to explore. If this is a trip to Mongolian's steppes, Australia, busy Hong Kong, unique Madagascar, beautiful beaches and other fantastic places or just walk in a local park, always a lot to see a lot to discover and share through my art. Would it be patterns, lines, textures or emotion, feeling of the place.
