"I am an artist and a graphic designer, working in a style that evokes avant-garde, and conceptual picturesque expressionism. 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."
