Biography

ONE RUSSIAN PAINTER IN BARCELONA

My artistic career began when I was a little child. Ever since I can remember I have loved to draw anytime and anywhere: on the beach, at home, at my friends’ home, in public transport I made up funny stories in pictures. In elementary school I studied different decorative crafts such as paper-mache, linocuts, application at the art studio for kids and then organized my «art classes» for my schoolmates. Later I enrolled in an academic art school to study drawing, painting and sculpture along with my ordinary school routine.

I got a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a specialization in Interior, Equipment and Upholstery at the Applied Arts and Design faculty. When studying I painted a lot in oil, watercolor and pastel. I also work in tapestry and batik techniques. My works are represented in different private collections in Russia, Spain and Italy. After graduation I worked for many years as a textile designer and a graphic-designer for advertising agencies and the famous magazines such as GQ, Gala, Burda. This world of glamour and beautiful pictures was really addicting but it lacked creativity and self-expression freedom.

I immigrate to Spain in 2013 year and it was here where I regained my creativity. I got new ideas and plans, I began to experiment with my artistic style in different ways. I enjoy finding new forms of expression. Today I am focusing on surrealism themes with light touch of realism and fantasy.

With my paintings I try to make the life of other people more joyful and festive. I invite you to browse my virtual art gallery and buy my works.
