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]
It's difficult—maybe it's even a bit silly—to make a choice between 52 weeks of endless exhibitions all over the world. But we're in the spirit of the festive season and if you'll care to join us in reflecting back on what we've appreciated this year, we've roped in some of our staff writers at ArtSlant to compile a bumper selection of what we've enjoyed writing about and seeing at galleries worldwide in 2014.
Here are some of our top selections:

We publish nearly 50 artist interviews a year, and that’s not counting the interviews with writers, curators, and collectors. Ranging from glitchy skype convos, café meet ups, gallery walk throughs, studio heart to hearts, even mock therapy sessions, we love . We get theory, advice, biography, inspiration, insight, techniqu... [more]

Return to this week's Art or Not [more]
Art or Not? Who is to say what is art or not? One of the pictures with description below is a genuine art work: every Friday ArtSlant asks our discerning readers if they can spot the difference.
This week: Festive lights.
"In the 30-by-30-foot installation, participants must remove their shoes to walk on a carpet of towels that resemble prayer rugs. Gazing at an overhead thicket of neon signs, they soon realize that they are looking at hundreds of slang terms for the vagina."
"Stepping into the magnificently lit... [more]

People wearily bemoan the untrustworthiness of auto mechanics. Often, this labor force is assumed to be full of dupers, exaggerators, and flat-out liars.
It’s cliché to think this: that they’ll take advantage in ways from small to horror-story large, since their customers don’t have the knowledge, tools, or will to address the problems plaguing their conveyance. And it’s cliché for a reason—especially in Miami—where personal transport is tantam... [more]

In line with this transition, many artists have created artworks that obey the market and buyer’s wishes, while others critique the very system they participate in. While th... [more]
The business of buying and selling art is one that the art world knows all too well. From reading about the latest Warhol sold at auction to following commercial gallery sales, we’re constantly reminded of art’s shift from object of visual and aesthetic pleasure to commodity item. As artworks are removed from their original creative and expressive origins, they can become lost—both literally and figuratively—in the commodification process. Often an artwork's provenance, catalogu... [more]
