Art is my passion, which does not leave me for a minute. I have been painting and drawing since childhood. I have received classical fine arts training, rooted in the russian tradition of academic realism, but in my creative work I use an experimental approach that goes beyond the classical aesthetics, using original and innovative means of expression, and emphatic symbolism. I try to be spontaneous, sometimes eclectic, and sometimes realistic. I am constantly studying world art, literature, cinema and other art forms.My second education and professional experience as a graphic designer involves working in international advertising agencies, such as JWT, brand for electricity store, TBWA, Tamooz, BBDO, and Grey Advertising. Today, I combine my work as a graphic designer with creative work of an artist."
