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]

A new Clear Painting is added to the set.
The Clear Paintings, dating to 2004, are the first that I'm aware of in the history of art.
While I scratch away on two new bronzes, and a few more abstract paintings with color as content, it seemed right to go forward with a couple more clears. Anyone familiar with art history will probably be able to catch the drift to the clears, and able to place them in the genre. They, in part, re-validate post-... [more]
They call it “Marbs.” Some of them do, anyway—not the real deal money; not 'Tony' and 'Mel' Banderas-Griffiths, whose beach-front palace’s lease, quite tragically, outlived their marriage—but the ones who are there for an earthier breed of bacchanal: the drunks, the San Tropez tanners, the motor-mouthed swimsuit babes, the rutting Croyden bucks—and so on, and so forth. Breasts as buoyant as puppies; pectorals as tight as spinster's mouths: the strip on Puerto... [more]
I am a new Abstract Artist. I am working with textured Paints, Metallics, Metal, Pumice Gels and Fabric to create a quirky and eccentric new look to Art. Aesthetic in taste, and non conventional, I like thinking out if the box. This makes my Art Pieces, unique, quirky, almost spiritually different to mainstream, in images and portraits. I like to get people thinking about what they see.
The lights and and Sun reflections in the paintings, changes the pictures also. Conveying differ... [more]

God first spoke to me when I was 8, while sitting in a wooden church pew in a sanctuary that was outfitted like a synagogue. I recall it was during the part in the "Jewish" ( I cannot verify this is actually a traditional Jewish practice, as I have never seen it happen in any subsequent standardized "Jewish" services) service when the Torah is brought out and everyone is singing and holding up their hands in the air reaching to touch the holiness. God's voice came through the retro woofers ( no... [more]

It’s late on a Friday and the Studio Door Gallery on 30th is still going strong for the opening of its national Comicon-inspired show, “Strip: Caricature, Satire and the Funnies.” The caricature artist is working on a couple who looks thrilled to be getting mildly caricaturized and someone is busily adding lines to the communal canvas off in the corner. She is concentrating so hard she barely notices people looking over her shoulder.

How do you like your Eggs? Controversial. This may be the answer the Milwaukee Art Museum would give after its recent acquisition of Eggs Benedict by Nicki Johnson. Although, rather than a lush scooping of hollandaise drizzled over ham hock, this dish consists entirely of a portrait of Pope Benedict XVI made from 17,000 colored condoms.
Many Catholics, not being the biggest fans of responsible spunk containment, have thrown in that extra delicious garnish—controversy. Even possibly going for that ultima... [more]
Two boys crouch on either side of the wall that separates the West Bank from Jerusalem. They are smuggling 1,000 loaves of Ka’ak Al Quds (“bread of Jerusalem”) through a hand-bored hole in the concrete. Ramallah-based artist Khaled Jarrar interviews them from behind an unsteady camera. “Pull! Pull!” urges the older boy. Dust from both the flour and the wall is seen as the younger child collects the bread on the other side in a makeshift production line. The zero-shap... [more]
