Born on 1th February in 1980 in Moscow - Russia. I finished an art college in 1997, and graduated from the Faculty of Graphic Design in Stroganov Moscow State University of Arts and Industry with a diploma in 2003. For a long time I have been working as a designer in various professional areas. Due to the lack of creative realization,

I took up my own independent creativity. I have been professionally engaged in the creation of paintings

and graphics since 2001. I work and experiment with a variety of paintings and graphic materials and

techniques. I prefer a sophisticated synthesis of oil glazing techniques, collages, scratching and my

own techniques. For a long time, I positioned my art only in a nonprofit format and recently

started to enter the art market. A short time ago, I became interested in creating video art,

and experience in CG, especially with 3D-graphics, came in handy.
Sometimes I spend my free time outdoors, creating realistic landscapes in dry pastel or oil.


One of the main tasks for me is to familiarize the viewer with the self-sufficiency of

the language of visual images embodied in my works. At the same time, variability,

versatility, depth and understatement are an integral feature of this language.

Unlike verbal-written communication, such a language does not impose

a narrow view on the opponent, does not aim at certain conclusions.

I, in a sense, provoke the viewer to 'joint' work, the result of which

will be his conclusions and impressions of the work.
My fascination with pure geometric shapes can be partially

explained by my past activities. For quite a long time

I was engaged in design, which taught me to a

certain order and strict organization of space.

At a certain moment I began to notice that

almost all my works are symmetrical.

This happens subconsciously, already

at the stage of the prime idea.
