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 lived in Havana as a child, and still visit frequently. Returning is always marked by relatives, friends, and of course a dose of tourist bliss—rum, beaches, and ruin lust. 
Ruin lust comes in large doses in Havana. It seems that after 1959 (Castro’s Socialist Revolution), time only began performing in one direction, aging and tearing apart the physical fabric of the city. Familiar images of Havana show vintage American cars that still (as if by miracle!) keep running; photoge... [more]

A week from my deadline, I was regretting the assignment I’d asked for: an article about street art in Bushwick. The source of my slowly developing dread about the piece, apart from the challenge of avoiding the issue of gentrification as a central consideration, was my sense of inadequacy as a journalist. I tend to get distracted and lose sight of the angle, and I hate conducting ad hoc interviews. So instead of scheduling meetings and striking up convos with local residents, and with pl... [more]

The Mona Lisa, Vermeer’s Milkmaid, Fabritius’ Goldfinch. At the time of their creation they were considered exceptional works, no doubt. But only by a limited audience. These works hung in private homes or palaces, exclusively on display for their owners and the occasional visitor. This changed dramatically with the advent of the museum in the eighteenth century and even more so with the museum’s transformation into a fully-fledged public institution two centuries later. At the Louvre, Rij... [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."

This is one of my latest paintings that I finished in September 2015. The inspiration behind it was for me to branch out and become a different self within reasonable distances from my mind to my brush. With all the amazing things happening this year with my art, I am always trying to come up with new ways to broadcast my trees and images by using colors that do not quite reflect but at the same time carry.I was quite pleased with the turn out of this piece. This painting is 30"W by 40"H by... [more]
