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]
Van Gogh in 3D...
Packed wall-to-wall in the basement of the Beurs van Berlage these days are some two hundred digitally “re-created” paintings amassed under the modest title: Van Gogh: The Ultimate Collection. And this just steps from the actual largest collection of van Gogh artworks in the world. So on a beautiful July morning the ArtSlant Team met in Amsterdam for a day of feasting our eyes on van Gogh, both the “ultimate” and the real. Remember: we did t... [more]

With the world reeling from recent global events that have severly impacted on our collective conscience—the barrage of scenes of manmade destruction, death, and disaster a vivid testimony of the dark side of humanity—visiting The Human Factor at Hayward Gallery was oddly cathartic.
Of course, the curators were not prophets, but in bringing together twenty-five years of sculpture through twenty-five artists they have created a perspicacious and timely exhibition that reflects on som... [more]

In God’s Eyes: A Match Made In Heaven
Your wife likes puppets.
She likes bow ties.
Her teeth never clang a fork.
She's French bourgeois,
She's a gentle sadist.
She makes homemade popsicles.
She plays guitar,

She lets you borrow her socks,
and she wears thong underwear.
You go commando.
You also refuse to shower after sex,
sometimes for days.
You nearly killed a girl,
sharing your deodorant optional philosophy.

Cities are dwelling places. Spaces that hold, connect, stir, shake and respond. Some people are invited in, others keep passing by and every now and then there are intruders; every city deals with crime differently. The city that I speak of is my body. It is a city of significance, once forgotten but now reawakened. It speaks to the multitude of meaning, which is me.
When I was four, I lived in a Glendale, a small growing suburban town thirty minutes from Los Angeles. In the morning,... [more]
