Symbolism, appeal to pure color and cultural codes of different epochs form the basis of my work.

I was born in Saratov, in the atmosphere of the creative work of Borisov-Musatov, Pavel Kuznetsov. Entered the Bogolyubov Art College. Then there were selective disciplines at the St. Petersburg Academy of Fine Arts named after Repin and, finally, the British Higher School of Design (Moscow)
"For over 10 years, I have been engaged in graphic design for brands and the gaming industry. Design and visual art have never existed on their own in my understanding. Occupation of design nourishes the ideas of painting, painting helps to avoid frontal solutions in design. "
In the art residencies of Paris and Barcelona, I got an interesting experience in preparing expositions. But if we talk about geography, then, of course, the northern countries are closer to me. A significant part of my work is devoted to Arctic subjects.
Symbolism, appeal to pure color and cultural codes of different epochs form the basis of my work.
