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]

It is hard to take any exhibition with a grandiose title such as Photography Since the Millennium seriously, but then again, we are just fifteen years into this new millennium.
And there have not been any major strides in photography since the new millennium except for, well, the death of analogue, and video is accessible to all. Goodbye film, hello pixels. Has there been one year since the new millennium that has not seen a new release of cameras with enhanced numbers of pixels? It is the mega... [more]

I like my paintings to exude a raw human energy. I want the process and the struggle to be evident in the marks.
I begin each painting with specific outcomes in mind yet I allow myself to go off on tangents, embracing each accident and creating something new within it. This ensures the process is lively and exciting.
I create images that interest me with historical references from Romantic eras and Renaissance painting, combined with expressive marks inspired by abstract expressionism and the o... [more]
On Saturday, October 31st, when all of New York was abuzz with Halloween fun and fright, the last of chashama 461 Studio & Gallery artists were emptying their contents into U-Haul trucks, donation bins and dumpsters. The building, located at 461 West 126th Street in Harlem’s factory district, is now closed after eight years of service to working artists and the Harlem arts community at-large.
At any given time, chashama – which means “to have vision” – operates between 15-25... [more]
Inside a crashing car one has the experience of time slowing down. Studies suggest that the sense of time slowing during a crisis event is happening during recollection, not during the perception of the event as it is happening. During the crisis event a larger than normal amount of information is being processed as an instinctual survival mechanism. The processing of more than the normal amount of information creates an elongated perception of the event. (1.) We see that recollection is an import... [more]

How do objects "end" their "lives"? Where do they go to die? How does an object have this presence beyond the monumental, a soul that is passing through time and place? Can both history and the ahistorical be dialectics in the same image? What is the afterlife of a technological process?
Shumon Ahmed's When dead ships travel, a show of photographic prints at Project 88, captures in its title a multitude of interpretations. These are images that speak for themselves over and over again. The “wh... [more]

This is one of my latest paintings that I finished in September 2015. The inspiration behind it was for me to branch out and become a different self within reasonable distances from my mind to my brush. 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]
