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 my favorite tracks I listen to almost on the daily is "The Pessimist (feat. J. Cole)" on Wale's third studio album titled"The Album About Nothing". In the intro, Jerry tells George "Oh so there is still hope?", and George responds saying "I don't want hope, hope is killing me. My dream is to become hopeless. When you're hopeless, you don't care, and when you don't care, that indifference,it makes you attractive."
I find this conversation intriguing. To dream is to wish somet... [more]

Art or Not? Art has many different forms. It can smell, move, be big, small, or even invisible. But when we look at art from afar, it often takes the single form of a flat image—all art has to face the challenges of the same medium, framed by our screens. With the term 'art' as vague as this, what gives an art work context now? Is it the editorial bête noir, the press release? Or can art hold its own and transmit a sense of 'something more' without words to shape it?
This week, we've c... [more]
Thank God for a new generation of artists! Today’s emerging artists stay away from the pushy know-it-all attitude of macho modernists who for half a century were quick to dismiss as inferior anyone supporting a dogma not their own. Neither are they infected by the postmodern virus of egalitarianism, which in the end robs everything of value and reduces art to an ironic game of smart references and endless footnotes. Artists of today are not afraid to shop around for culturally diverse icono... [more]
