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]
This past September, I did a curatorial residency at Casa Chuck in San Antonio, Texas. This was not my first time there (years before I curated an exhibition for the Contemporary Art Month) but, as it always happens when you are installing a show, I barely poked my nose out of the gallery.

San Antonio has a diverse, vibrant, and welcoming art scene that gets together in ever-fluxing arts initia... [more]

In Pittsburgh, the ghost of industrial America is more unwieldy than in any city this side of Detroit. Abandoned buildings and machinery abound, with a lot less of this past repurposed than in more modern and populous places like Brooklyn or Chicago.
Alloy Pittsburgh’s bi-annual exhibition at Carrie Furnaces, just over the city’s border in Homestead, PA, looks to create a symbiosis between Pittsburgh’s heavy rustbelt legacy and the opportunities its rubble leaves. The furnaces stan... [more]
