About the Artist
I was born on the island Sakhalin, in a small town Poronaisk, situated on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. My childhood years passed far away from the so-called “civilization” and the only window to the reality that I had were children illustrated books. They became my fairy tale world which, although I have grown up, I do not want to depart with even today. Art has become my philosophy, my religion, and that fairy tale world where all my fantasies and wishes come true. The world of brushes , pencils, watercolors ,and miscellaneous bottles with inks and paints , which I endlessly love, have become for me a theater, where I organize everything in my specific order and create a spectacle to amuse myself. In this theater I am the director, the actor and the viewer at the same time.
I graduated Graphic Art of Khabarovsk University. I am freelance artist, took part in more than 200 international exhibitions. Collaborate with some galleries in USA, the Netherlands and Belgium .
