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]

With all the amazing things happening this year with my art, I am always trying to come up with new ways to broadcast my trees and images by using colors that do not quite reflect but at the same time carry.I was quite pleased with the turn out of this piece. This painting is 30"W by 40"H by... [more]
