I am a full studio
artist, graduated with MFA from Moscow Suricov Art Academy in 1996. Throughout
my experiences showing my art work in Asia and USA, UK, Russia and Mexico
and having living experiences in London and Oxford, and Mexico-city.
Finally I established my art studio and gallery in France since 2005 where
I live since.
I devoted my recent theme “ SERENDIPITY " , large watercolours
on paper ( 130x180 cm) which were inspired by my travel in Japan in 2015
, being in the forest of Nara and Kyoto. I love being in the forest, walking
on the path that only deer will take, to feel it and then to transmit
this feeling into art work.
The RONDOS series that I offer for this show were thought as the studies
for the larger watercolours. But finally they become an independent art
work and have their own voice.
I use watercolour, grounded semi precious stones and local pigments in
I work with colours and images that come to me, from my travels, experiences,
from reading poetry and history.
I believe that the art is always intended for the other, this imaginary
one who will stand in front of my art work with their expectations and
archetypical memories. There I'll be a dialogue, a connection. And maybe
some old established patterns will collapse and some new connection, a
new way of looking at the world will emerge.
