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]

New Mexico enjoys—or sometimes suffers from—a number of artworld stereotypes and iconic images. This is a good thing, as it draws many people to this very special, out-of-the way place. But images of western landscapes and traditional Native American pottery looms so large in popular consciousness, that the whole other-world of contemporary artists working in Santa Fe, and the Southwest in general, can be overshadowed or obscured completely. This is not at all to diminish the value of thes... [more]
"Believers" acrylic painting by Fernando Carpaneda
"I don't like to be treated special just because I'm an artist. I prefer still drinking "Pabst Blue Ribbon" than drink "Champagne". Money and fame doesn't mean anything to me."

In its fourth edition, EXPO Chicago has shown considerable institutional growth, adding new programs and publications, and expanding from 125 galleries in 2012 to 140 from 16 countries in 2015. A few months ago, signs promoting the fair popped up all around the city, boosting expectations for art lovers. Although EXPO is open to the public for just three days, the week of September 14-20—now referred as the EXPO Art Week—is one of the Chicago art scene’s busiest times of the y... [more]
The first edition of Germany’s Preis der Nationalgalerie in 2000 included three of today’s most well known Berlin-based artists: Olafur Eliasson, Katharina Grosse and Christian Jankowski. Strangely, the fourth nominee and that year’s winner, Dirk Skreber, has had less shows since 2000 than the four nominees for the 2015 Preis der Nationalgalerie.
Museum award competitions give artists considerable amount of exposure in the media and tend to catapult the artists’ careers, their market... [more]
Art or Not? Every week we look at a lot of art, IRL, URL, and whatever lies in between. The more we see, the less we see the difference. What distinguishes art other than its context? Do we even need to fight for these distinctions? Art is vague. Experience is subjective.
This week, we were out at the first of the season's openings in New York, when we found ourselves, er, balls deep in the latest installation by a very well-known and cherished figure of the art world. Which was it? Clue: if you fol... [more]

Rubble and rock crushed under foot. Dead twigs, rebar, and shoots pocked the boulder field like tiny flag poles, stripped of their sigils. Chirps from the ceiling revealed a nestled group of parakeets dropping white ordnance on a hill of grey concrete. The smell of dirt and dissolution hung in the stale air. Down some stairs, into a darkened basement, the first thing that greets is the smell of a bog, that slow but sweet smell of rot. Leaves float on three or four inches of murky water lit by a si...

“I’m scared to go back.”
We were all squeezed into wooden folding chairs with a crowd standing around the perimeter of the room at Last Projects, on the second floor, where an old air conditioner, inadequately exhaling intermittent wafts of cool air, and a set of heavy Venetian blinds blocked out the sights and sounds of Hollywood Boulevard below. It was nearing 10pm.
Their screening was over, and Pink, as she would like to be called, was at the front of the room, standing with her... [more]
