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]

“Art brings together people, not tears them apart,” said the Palestinian curator Reem Fadda, who is the Associate Curator of Middle Eastern Art for the Abu Dhabi Guggenheim. In her selection of artis... [more]

In this concentrated sea of art, there is a hope that just around t... [more]
My first show in Paris was unexpected, overly welcomed, and consummated life long friendships.

Usually, it’s a nightmare due to poor staging, models, or any other easily flawed piece of the larger puzzle; and the dream because it’s the glow of my work on stage. This time every moment was flawless, it’s Paris, and my host Anggy Haif is an expert. Within four days, he was seamlessly able to corral three fabulous models... [more]
An element is one of those most basic visible things. In science, the elements are on the periodic chart (hydrogen, iron, oxygen, gold, sulfur, etc.). All the complex chemicals are simply combinations of these (H2O). In art, it is an element if it is visible and there is nothing more simple or basic to define it. It cannot be a combination of more than one thing and still be an element. In practice, the elements are commonly seen in combination with each other. For example, color and value ar... [more]
Found objects have always been secret allies for visual artists. They are stumbled upon and acquired, magpie-like, because of a private vision of “intrinsic interest,” to be teased out and made concrete later. Found photographs, too, have long since found their place inside artists’ private wunderkammern. Following the Box, an exhibition of a particularly curious origin now on view at the Indian Museum, Kolkata, brings the aesthetic power of found photographs front and center. http:/... [more]
