Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticity and abi... [more]
One of the best things I read about the status of art in the public space this year was written by Edo Dijksterhuis "it becomes like urban furniture, not something people notice. No one seems to care about monuments or how they’re perceived, whether they’re perceived at all. It takes a conscious effort to really see them again."
This really made me think: public art is a huge committment but it's true, it rarely has the ability to genuinely make us look, or re-look, let alone change... [more]

Edgar Degas, “Little Dancer Aged Fourteen.”
Many consider Edgar Degas an Impressionist artist—a painter of modern life. That he was, though different than some of his contemporaries. He called himself a “Realist.” Rather than painting plein air landscapes, using color, light and shade to capture fleeting moments, as Monet and other Impressionists famously did, Degas captured everyday movements in the theater, at the ballet or the cafés he frequente...

My work deals with the perception of spaces. Since my early years I have always scanned the atmosphere as soon as I entered a space. Many people unconsciously and automatically do the same. I am conscious of this scanning and therefore the atmosphere reverberates in me. I always position myself in a space in such a way that I feel safe and that I am able to read the environment.
My paintings are like gates, openings and cracks, they are doors to another reality. These are the physical exits to... [more]
I was recently at an art fair where one gallery—that shall remain nameless—presented the work of a young artist in a solo booth. The work, while distinct in some ways, was at the very least derivative of Anish Kapoor’s wall mounted discs. Enameled aluminum panels in sweeping gradients, they were perfectly suited to the market of the fair: take it home, put it on a wall. They were robust, large works that shouted “wealth.” Sold for $800-$2000 apiece. By the third da... [more]
In today's mode of techno-voyeurism, we're constantly peeking into the factory to see how the sausage is made. The artist's studio has always had an allure, the inchoate site of creativity, the setting for private practice—like an escort's boudoir, the biggest mystery is, what do they do when they're alone in there?
We zoom in closer to see what artists keep on their most personal work space: their desk. What does it reveal about them, or about their art? We invite artists from very different... [more]

The Broad Museum’s September 20 opening in downtown Los Angeles is just under a month away. “You had to remind me of that,” Joanne Heyler laughs—her humility doesn’t quite feel nervous, more pragmatic.
