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]

I had a rude awakening this last April when Robin Lysne asked me to participate in the June/July exhibit "Plastic Paralysis" at Studio Bongiorno in Santa Clara, CA. I had no idea that plastic was and is creating a huge environmental disaster: huge funnel like gyres larger than the state of Texas made of floating plastic debris in all of the world's major oceans. As a result, plastic has invaded the food chain in both minute and/or large form in most all fish and sea mammals.
To me what hit home was se... [more]
“From a Northern-European perspective, Australia is a deeply fascinating country and remote continent on the other side of the world. After working in the European art world for several years I was fortunate to broaden my scope by moving to Sydney. Even more fortunate, I started working at Piermarq where I’m learning extensively about the dynamics of the Australian art market and Australian indigenous and non-indigenous art.
In the past few months I became aware that the Australian art marke... [more]
One issue that weighs on my psyche as an artist working in the realm of realism is that of understanding the attraction to and value of created nature in art. In my own work, I create and preserve moments from nature as a statement on the transience of life. But, during my wanderings through picturesque parks and other abundantly verdant spaces in Seattle, my current city of residence, I began to question why we seek to recreate imagery from the organic world when it already appears perfectly in na...

Nicki Escudero is the assistant editor for American Art Collector, Western Art Collector, and American Fine Art Magazine. A journalist with more than 12 years of preint experience, Escudero is thrilled to write for and edit three of the country’s most prominent art magazines because of her own interest in art, having had her paintings shown in exhibitions in Phoenix. Escudero loves meeting and interviewing artists who are helping make the world brighter with every work.
This exhibition is called Private and Confidential, the pieces are beautifully framed prints, that vibrate with luminous colour and luscious brush strokes, these seductive effects give a warm and enticing atmosphere to the imagery, but underneath is a certain and sudden shock as the mind realises the figurative imagery that challenges the imagination and beckons satire and paradox, and the cartoon, these seem to rent through the surface of appearances.....perhaps to comfort the knowing viewer wi...

When I visited Venice for the second time, I spent some time at the slightly flooded Punta della Dogana to admire some sculptures on the plaza. One of my favorite, “Boy With Frog,” by Charles Ray, has since been unfortunately removed, due to locals' demand of the return to the spot of a "romantic" lamppost. Without that amazing and controversial work, which would be my most favorite, I move on to cite other two sculptures as my favorites. The first one was a 2010 metaphoric one... [more]
