I’ll be gentle , i.e. brief. 🙂
I’m an artist who lives and works in St. Petersburg (but now, since 2012, the settlement Koltushi, just outside the town) . I was born in 1985 in the Sverdlovsk city, now this is Ekaterinburg. As a child I, like many other children, painted a lot , some of my drawings are very funny. Here is the collage we made it with my mother, entertain:
I am a manager in the social sphere on the first higher education, graduated FINEK (Saint -Petersburg State University of Economics and Finance, edition 2007), a fairly big-name college and the fact that I graduated with honors says, unfortunately, only about my ability to learn. Maybe I made the wrong decision, but this step was quite logical after graduating from business school “Vzmakh” . I wanted to start a business and earn a lot of money, by the way. The business was started, but it did not work good enough. Now (2013), I have finally known, who I am and it must be said, is not that late, according to this article the most productive age of the artist – 35 years old … At the moment I am a student of the International School of Design in the direction of interior decoration that is closer to my desires and aspirations, and give me some of the skills that are not sufficiently developed strongly.
When I was at the University and did other boring work I painted regularly, studied independently, visiting some private lessons and, moreover, participated in exhibitions… People looked with favor on my works.
The turning point in my attitude to my art was meeting with a very talented and intelligent woman Ekaterina, who is my curator, manager and inspiration. She appreciated my works professionally and offered me a partnership. According to her “tip” Elena Prilashkevich – Ph.D., a member of the International Association of Art Critics ( AIS) – wrote a wonderful and interesting article about my art (article is very well to navigate in my work, to begin to understand and enjoy it) . Then my first solo exhibition and first sale are happened. 🙂
Now I’m working on two projects : “Spectrum of Meaning of Life ” and “Other Worlds on Earth.” More information about these projects, I’ll write later, after the openning of the final shows.
By the way, I worked on the project “Spectrum of Meaning of Life” at the residence for artists Spark Box Studio, in a unique location in Canada – Prince Edward County, where , surrounded by inspiring nature ( so similar to Russian ) art studios, galleries and workshops are settled. I will write a separate text on my stay there because I have a lot of impressions, I need to scoop up the sea and pour it all on jars 🙂
The project “Other Worlds on Earth” is my first joint project! I work with an interesting photographer Denis Churin.
That’s all my introductory letter. There are a couple of my very first independent works even in relatively adulthood 🙂
