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]

In place, he designated London’s Tate Modern curator Chris Dercon to accept the award on his behalf. The award is devoted to... [more]
Danny Volk talks to artists in their studios about life and art—while they do his make-up. This concept was a new one for us, and, unsurprisingly, it produces some unique moments: see artists like Theaster Gates, Pope.L, and Jessica Stockholder working in their studios as you've never seen them before.
Revisit Season 1 as we anticipate the all-new Made-Up Season 2, to be released this Spring on ArtSlant.
This week: "Made up... of what?" asks performance artist Amber Ginsburg, as she rumi... [more]
A majority of science students aim to become a doctor or an engineer, but only a few reach the determined targets. Know the reason? It is the differences of mental capability and the tutelage. Not many are privileged enough to receive the proper guidance, as a result of which, they fail to cope with the escalating pressure and secure poor results. Even the competent and deserving students couldn’t score better due to the absence of systematic assistance. The school life can be a... [more]

This work represents the 22 veterans that take their own lives every day. 8,030 rolls make up A Battle Lost, one for every veteran suicide last year. I roll the paper to create a spiral, a symbol of life to death, beginning to end. The gold is inspired by a Japanese practice called Kintsugi where they fill cracks in pottery with gold. This highlights the... [more]
“I’m not walking down there, there’s a body on the floor.” My friend said. We were coming out of a pizza place that had a gunshot mark in the TV. “Come on, it’s fine. She’s not dead.” As we walked past the disputed human being lying face down in the middle of the stenching sidewalk, she turned on her side and smiled vaguely into the distance with her brown, elderly meth-lined face.

In her essay Why I Write, Joan Didion argued that writing was “an aggressive, even hostile act.” Writing is as an argument, she said, a way to elegantly impose one’s opinion upon another. “There’s no getting around the fact that setting words on paper is the tactic of a secret bully, an invasion, an imposition.”

FLOWERS OF INNOCENCE Why is it that so important, it is at the same time so trivial? Why to paint flowers, then we condemn ourselves to be called tandeto artists, decorative and superficial "the transformers' reality? Why do not we have another, as a universal symbol of beauty?

Why, then, when we grow flowers in a pot, on a piece of cotton wool, experiencing betrayal, a... [more]
