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.

CalArts is a small community, and so this current scandal is having a real effect on it. But despite its... [more]

"The equality of citizens is worth defending"—after all, as the FT concludes.
