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 plasticit... [more]

South African Artist Wim Botha has prepared an incredible work of carved books for the Venice Biennale.
“Unless there’s terrible news Africa doesn’t get much notice in this part of the world.” Thus begins a piece by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Holland Cotter, for The New York Times. The piece, titled “A Million Pieces of Home”, subconsciously reveals a patronizing ideology which more often than not pervades the We... [more]
Installation view of “Depression” at Francois Ghebaly Gallery. All images by the author for Hyperallergic.
LOS ANGELES — It was 4:20pm when I walked into Depression and encountered Andrea Ursuta’s piece “Stoner” (2013). A batting-cage ball-throwing machine creaked on, spun once, and died before it could eject anything from its quarantined-off belly. It is located inside a larger batting cage. There is no entrance. There is no bat to play with. Stones are... [more]
Schloss Eggenberg in Graz, Austria is a magnificent Baroque palace and in 2010 was included in the listing of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites. In 2012, when I made a brief stop at Graz, though I was not able to visit the museum housed inside the Schoss, Universalmuseum Joanneum, I was able to tour the building and its lovely garden ground. Though I couldn't go inside many marvelous rooms, I was able to see this wonderful triptych below through the window and though it was medieval in styl... [more]
"Yes!" Art Competition
Submission Deadline is August 25th, 11:45 pm
There are things in our lives to which we spontaneously respond - "Yes!". However, we also have to learn to say - "Yes" to things that first do not resonate well with us. Maybe there is a purpose for which they come into our lives? Instead of fighting, isn't it better to say "yes!" and embrace the unknown which will help us to reach new heights?
We want to see the best "Yes" artworks that you have created, either recently o... [more]
Graz is an ancient Austrian city, whose Renaissance cityscape is dominated by the complex of Mausoleum of Emperor Ferdinand II and the Dom and the Katharinenkirche (right, left and middle). In 2010, I visited Graz and saw this impressive tomb, a minor St. Peter's, designed by Ferdinand's court artist Giovanni Pietro de Pomis. The interior was both grand and intimate, magnificent and humble. I found the center shrine (above) very impressive, dark and somber, topped with the Emperor's proud... [more]
Holland Cotter has a wonderful new piece in the New York Times entitled A Memory Museum.
Cotter writes," I’m also a curator of my memory, which carries traces of art encounters from over the years. A few of those encounters — with certain objects, books, buildings — have altered the atmosphere, changed how I see and joined a permanent collection that I regularly revisit."
He then challenges us to describe experiences with art that has changed our lives and to post them in t... [more]

On July 12, 2014, the 40th edition of "An exhibition, A restoration" was inaugurated in Norcia (Perugia, Umbria, Italy) with the aim to restore and to preserve the artistic heritage of the famous Umbrian town.
This year, the initiative has the participation of 416 Italian artists who intended to support the work of protection of the altarpiece of the "Coronation of the Virgin" by Jacopo Siculo (1541), which requires a sound-absorbing curtain. The exhibition is... [more]
