I am an artist, living in London, born in St.Petersburg. I work with various painting techniques, video and multimedia installations.
I am not always painting or filming. I love very much to travel, to learn from other cultures, visit different cities, observe people; analyse, write my thoughts and memories into numerous little notebooks.. read books about great people, philosophy, history, listen to lectures about quantum physics, meditate and run…
My art education went through many phases, starting from classical approach studying painting, learning performance and video installations in my hometown’s theatrical academy and finally doing course of Abstract painting in St Martins in London.
Topics that have always touched me and influenced my art are time, memory, the way of recalling, physicality, nature, the contrast of light and shadow; the way that a ray of light snatches an object in a dark room, just like our memory fishing out moments from the shadows of the past bringing them into the freshness of NOW..
