         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]

Posted 2/2/16

What about Africa?, at Witteveen Visual Art Centre in Amsterdam, is an exhibition with topnotch art on display. At the same time, its concept is highly problematic. The show brings together works by fourteen artists, who have little in common besides being African. They hail from countries like Morocco, South Africa, Benin, and Kenya—places removed from each other by the full length and breadth of a vast continent. In terms of social background, national history, or ethnicity the particip... [more]

A report published in September 2015 on 247 Wall Street stated that Oakland is the third most dangerous city in the United States, following Memphis and Detroit. The Bay Area in general, from the East Bay to the South Bay, is plagued with violence, though the entire nation could use an attitude adjustment—particularly when it comes to gun violence. I live in Oakland, and as can be expected when someone’s town or city is wracked with hostile incidents, there is a tendency to localize fe... [more]

12/26/15 Posted 12/26/15

In the past few years, we have come across a new technology called Augmented Reality which says “Interact with your dream world through your own senses”, meaning we can play games with our gestures and body movements, we can feel a well constructed building at a foot as if it is in real and can walk around it easily via zoom in and zoom out. It is an evolution which paves the way to add information discoveries to the real world in undefined possibilities. Today, with the advancemen... [more]
